Vintage Congo Nail Fetish.
Old Bakongo Tribe African Tribal Figurine.
A rare and unusual fetish figurine, by the Bakongo tribe of coastal Congo in Africa.
The figure stands at 12" tall, and is made from a dark wood. The body shape, face and hat are hand caved, with metal objects such as nails hammered in in various places. The lower body has a leather "skirt", with twine around the neck and skirt top.
A fetish is an object believed to have supernatural powers, or in particular, a human-made object that has power over others.
A unique piece of African home decor, or superb as a gift!
