Congo civilizations share many artistic and cultural traditions. These include body modification (like filed teeth, scarifications, and body painting) and social institutions (initiation and agrarian rites, healing, and mortuary rituals).
The art of the Congo often represented nature spirits and authority figures. The common artistic heritage of the Bantu-speaking people will also be examined here in three forms of sculpture.
