520    "For over a century, the Yaka, who live in the 
       southwestern corner of the Democratic Republic of the 
       Congo, have produced figurative statuettes, masks, and 
       other objects that have fascinated explorers, merchants 
       and traders, colonial officials, missionaries, and 
       collectors of African art. This book brings together some 
       of the earliest as well as some of the most visually 
       striking examples with a view toward their context in 
       ceremony and curative rituals, namely, their use in 
       chiefly installations, "institutions of affliction," and n
       -khanda initiation to manhood. Also explored is their 
       interplay with primary artifacts and overarching concepts 
       within Yaka society such as leadership, divination, and 
       sorcery.  Moreover, art objects are embedded in the 
       history of a people with earlier and later examples and 
       nuanced changes that occur in society, not the least of 
       which include colonial influences and "anti-fetish" 
       religious movements." -- Publisher's description.
