Email for shipping outside of continental US

The Boa live in the Aruwimi River region in northeastern part of the country. The population of this region is of Sudanese origin. Although the Boa tribe was influenced by the Mangbetu, Boa works retain their originality. The function of their statues are apotropaic: to protect society members from the dangers of illness, hunting, evil spirits, etc. This is a very fine statue.
