Reliquary guardian figure made of wood. These figures are known as ‘byeri’ and have the task of taking care of the peace and tranquility of the reliquaries. in the past these pieces were placed in a basket together with skulls or bones of the dead and combined with epic poems recited in the form of a prayer. This symbolized a protective spirit and guardian of the domestic.
The clear tonality and a geometric conception of its volumes achieve a piece of great simplicity and beauty.
It comes from Congo.
