Konso Grave statues.

Old and handmade Ethiopian grave wooden statue called Waga, also known as a waka or waaka, a type of memorial statue carved from wood by the Konso in southern Ethiopia. The traditional forests are used as burial places for ritual leaders and for medicinal purposes. Wooden anthropomorphic statues (waga), carved out of wood and mimicking the deceased, are erected as grave markers. Such small figures are used for protection on the graves. The Konso of Ethiopia carve simple, elongated figures as part of sculptural groupings honoring the memory of prominent men. The groupings may include representations of the deceased, his wife, his defeated enemies, and even animals that he killed.
