Sold

Chokwe constitute the largest ethnic group in eastern Angola. The farming and processing of agricultural products is done almost exclusively by women. Chokwe sculptors were the most famous of the region and have influenced the art of many neighboring peoples. This figure called Cisola is thought to represent a great queen or, more symbolically, a female ancestor celebrated for her fecundity. Such figures are used during fertility rites and to safeguard pregnant women.
