Genuine Yaka Wooden Statue // Standing Man v.2
This is a beautifully carved wooden figurine depicting the human image— one of the most recognized forms of Yaka sculpture. This statue is a standing masculine figure with his hands placed atop his chin. Yaka society is tightly structured and headed by a chief of Lunda origin, the Kiamfu, who delegates responsibilities to ministers and lineage chiefs, Unkwagata. Young men are expected to pass through various initiation stages, including circumcision. The tribe lives principally from hunting, although subsidiary farming is undertaken by the women. Yaka artistic tradition is rich and various, but much of it has been informed by their neighbors: the Suku, the Kongo, the Holo and the Teke.
