Item Description

These spear blades were used and were traded over a large area along the Ubangi River. The Ngbandi are an ethnic group from the upper Ubang, the Northwestern part of Congo. Their subsistence depended on traditional hunting and gathering. They were once known as warriors, and their skilled blacksmiths made some of the most prized African knives and lances. Mobutu Sese Seko, the ex-president of Zaire, came from the Ngbandi ethnic group.
