The land of the Kota, numbering some 75,000, is situated in the eastern part of Gabon, extending slightly into the Congo Republic. The Kota are actually a number of groups of peoples with common cultural traits. Ancestor worship formed the core of the family group’s religious and social life. Clans in turn comprise several lineages or family groups that trace their descent from a common lineage ancestor. This is an important point related to their art, for like the Fang, the Kota revere the relics of ancestors. Ancestor worship formed the core of the family group’s religious and social life.

 

Chairs and stool are items of prestige. Notice how Kota use similar characteristics on chairs, sculptures and other objects they create. The "guard" masks on this stool face three directions as protective figures.
