A Host of Devils provides an in-depth account of the background,
origin and development of the spirit figure sculptures which
emerged during colonial times among the Makonde people of
Mozambique.The creation of such works is shown to connect with a
regional system of knowledge and practice, within which spirits
function as a format for expression. The book describes the ways in
which the sculpture emerged, as well as the author's experience of
learning how to carve.
