Collection of 20 Decorative and Very Expressive Bembe Mudzini Reliquary Figures

About

Such dolls were mostly used for a so-called second funeral. After the deceased was buried, the remains were exhumed again a few months later. Sometimes pieces of hair or of bone were taken and inserted into these dolls. This allowed the relatives to always have a link with the deceased. Second half of the 20th century. Between 50.8 x 24.5 x 17 and 54 x 25 x 17.
