This Kneeling female figure holding a bowl comes from the Hemba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Elements that identify this figure with the Hemba include characteristic carving structures such as the large head and the traditional hairstyle. The theme of bearer with bowl is common to the Hemba. Called Mboko or Kabila this bowl bearer figure recalls the divination bowl (mboko) usually made out of calabash and owned by the diviner who used it to keep the sacred white chalk, Mpembe, and other divination tools and ritual elements necessary in the divination process.
