Statue of the female spirit (Anjenu ) originating from the Idoma peoples living south of the Benue River. The statue evokes a spiritual protective power that inhabits the water or the bush and sometimes appears in dreams. Anjenu helps to cure diseases and, above all, it helps female fertility. Anjenu was invoked by men who wanted their wives to become pregnant. Bulging tapered breasts and navels are common. The face is usually painted with pigments, with scar marks on the forehead and blackened lips. Seated statues are believed to embody fertility, a frequent theme in the region.

It is made of carved wood, with notches and pigments.
