Widespread throughout the Fang country, the cult of relics of deceased relatives was one of the main ritual pillars of the society.

Representative of Fang sculptural creation, this male statue on its cylindrical bark box belongs to the corpus of reliquary guardians, statues of ancestors known as eyema-byeri. Used in ancestral cults, they were intended to contain the relics of the lineage’s most illustrious ancestors.
