A very impressive Adamawa sculpture. Four quite voluminous kneeling women carry on their heads a platform on which three bearded men clad in long robes stand with sacrificial bowls in their hands. Between them are a hoofed animal and a rooster, probably sacrificial animals and two smaller kneeling figures with sacrificial bowls on their heads.
