Discover Fang art Equatorial Guinea

Fang people speak Bantu and live in the continental part of Equatorial Guinea. It is here where the biggest communities of witchcraft practitioners are found. During rituals, paced by songs and dances, Ngil members (a sort of ritual and judiciary association), wear white masks with strong characteristics, with a rounded forehead and a triangular face. One of the most fascinating ceremonies, the abira, enables the community to chase out the devil. The skulls of ancestors are preserved in a bark reliquary, surmounted by a statuette with a long body or a finely-worked head. These sculptures, that lose all their symbolic meaning if taken away from the reliquary, have made Fang art famous.
