Nkisi n’Kondi is a magical power figure carved in the likeness of human being, meant to highlight its function in human affairs. A nkisi n’kondi can act as an oath taking image which is used to resolve verbal disputes or as an avenger or guardian if sorcery or any form of evil has been committed. Nkisi are carved under the divine authority and in consultation with an nganga or spiritual specialist who activates these figures through chants, prayers and the preparation of sacred substances which are aimed at ‘curing’ physical, social or spiritual ailments.
