The culture of the ancient Makonde tribe comes alive through modern Makonde artisans in the form of this beautiful abstract Makonde carving. This particular carving features one of the most frightening and powerful spirits. The Makanuya Shetani was believed to be as large as a man, living only on water. However, its power exceeded that of any man's. The use of detail and expression by the artist works expertly to instil fear into anyone who glances upon it.
