African Figures, protective amulets
Common to many tribes was the belief that certain images, amulets, or fetish were capable of calling the invisible might through rituals. The consecration of one’s own spirit is activated by offering sacrifices and magical invocations to the various divinities. The collaboration among sculptors, healers, and shamans is of great relevance during the ritual.
