There are many Songye Figurines Generally masculine, the figures stand on a circular base, have an elongated torso and hands resting on the abdomen. Their large head has a square or pointed chin, an ajar mouth and a triangular nose. Sometimes, these statues are hung inside houses for apotropaic purposes, thanks to iron hooks passed under the arms. Larger fetishes, intended to protect communities, were kept in small huts, while smaller fetishes were reserved for individual use and protected against disease and death. The manipulations of these fetishes often took place during the phases of the new moon.
