A Nkisi is essentially a « power figure » which is charged with spiritual energies to fight an illness of some origins, health, but also political matter or seek for justice.
The original sculpture receives various elements to strenghten its powers.
Among them, will be found iron (mainly nails) a piece of mirror, and, what will be later on, with the voodoo, called gris-gris: a small bag containing secret substances.
Each and every component, including colors, are harmonised to increase efficency.
