Statues
gallery : statues
     
There are two types of statues: religious and magical. The first group of statues are connected with birth, puberty, marriage, and death including both the ancestor spirits and the genii of nature. These usually have a closed form with no additional material like horn, nails, or shells added to them. The composition and frequently the facial expression manifest calm and dignity. The magical statues are more aggressive in their facial expressions. Often their attitudes suggest latent movement.
