The Makonde, a community living in southeastern Tanzania and northeast Mozambique, and known worldwide for their sculpting prowess.

The Shetani figures are seen as evil-doers, or evil spirits, and are related to the Shaitan, or Satan, and the concept of the Devil, and doing evil. They are believed to contain powerful energy, of a black magic variety, which can be directed, in a similar way to Voudon and witchcraft practices.
