Fang - Bieri reliquary (fem) figurine on stand, ca. 1950.

Very nice specimen with an impressive hairstyle.
Light termites damage on the left hip. Remnants of palm wine sprinklings (offerings) on the whole surface.
This reliquary guard watched over the ancestors (bones).
Brought back from D.R.Congo by a former colonial who was a mining engineer in Belgian Congo and worked in the Malachite mine in the copper basin of Upper Katanga for the “Union Minière du Haut Katanga”.
I also have his photo album (in which you can see him at home with his family and at work in the mines). I can mail you some photos, if desired.
