Very Rare Old Collection Piece.
This postcard was made from an extraordinary colonial photograph, that was perhaps taken by a member of the Congrégation du Saint-Esprit. It depicts the healer (Attributed to Monsignor Augouard, A Sangu 'nganga' / healer), with various reliquaries in the form of boxes made of bark or baskets covered with strips of hide. When it was reproduced in 1912 in a book "Chez les Fang ou quinze années de séjour au Congo Francais" by Henri Trilles (1866-1949), a French missionary of the Congrégation du Saint-Esprit, the photograph was made less 'offensive' to its audience by painting a collared white shirt on the healer.
Photographer unknown, creation date: late 19th century. The image ist excellent, as per scan. Postally unused.
