These tribal statues protecting against enemies were made according to the instructions of the Nganga ngoombu and the object's sponsor. This tribal art sculpture was then activated using rituals and incantatory formulas.
Crouching, holding an imposing horned head with his hands and displaying a grin revealing his teeth, the character embodies an evil spirit, named kiteke. Horns, associated with the red antelope, also refer to the animal's behaviour in the bush and its sexuality. In addition, among the neighboring Kongo clans, the naked posture, crouching, sondama, evokes an emergency action, attacking enemies in a supernatural way.
