The ritual figures of the Teke give this African people access to another world. They embody the power of nature spirits and the power of ancestors.
This book documents the wealth of shapes of the Teke figures, which, through their unmistakable style, make their own contribution to the great diversity of the cultures of Africa.
Edited by African art specialist/collector Henricus Simonis, with texts by Gerd Korinthenberg who also produced the book ‘Yaka: Power Figures’ (2019).
