The Konso people of southwest Ethiopia worship the sky God, Waq, and place carved wooden effigies at prominent places to honour their illustrious ancestors. These eerie totems are often found grouped together. They can depict a dead hero, his wives, his enemies slain in battle or dangerous animals he may have killed in his lifetime.
