Salampasu Circumcision Panel – DR Congo

 

Polychromic Panel in Wood and Pigments. Cm. 86,0 x cm. 59,0.

Like most ethnic groups in DR Congo, the Salampasu are a Bantu people, a term deriving from linguistic classification terms. The Bantu peoples began migrating east, west and south out of Central Africa sometime around the time of Christ, or a little before.

Their name means “Hunter of Locusts.” They are better known to their neighbours as fierce warriors.

The Salampasu have strong commercial relations with the peoples across the border, the Chokwe and Lunda, to whom they were subject at one time.
