Chokwe statue. The Chokwe people (or Tschokwe) come from Central and South Africa; they’re particularly present in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Angola and to a lesser extent in Zambia and Namibia. The artists of this ethnic group are masterful wood carvers, able to mold statues, masks, tools for hunting or for fertility rites. Many sculptures are dedicated to the reigning prince. In Chokwe representations, there is always the saltire (Saint Andrew’s cross).
