"Mangrove ... Fetish ... Gibons .... Mentawai ..."
So many challenging names in this title ... I must tell you that even the spirits like to have toys ... hanging from the roof, with several, to amuse the benevolent spirits in the common house, among the Mentawai ... these "toy dolls, in the effigy of gibons( those shadows with long arms...), deified are rare. Even more difficult is to date them, because since time immemorial, these peoples have practiced these rituals under the aegis of shamans. The gray tint than ' took the warrior pouée, made of mangrove wood, is due to the fumes that laze in the attic.
