Description

This figure represents the hero Chibinda Ilunga, royal ancestor of the Chokwe people. By association, Chibinda Ilunga became a culture hero and model for Chokwe chiefs as well. The figure of Chibinda Ilunga came to represent the archetypal chief who maintains the well-being of his people, and he also served as a role model for men in Chokwe society. This figure wears elaborate headgear with rolled side elements as a sign of his royal rank. The figure hold 2 children in his hands.
