Aesthetically, kafigeledjo is at once both representational and abstract. Its fabric-woven form topped with feathers and quills resembles a frenetic human figure, yet the layers of mud and other crusty sacrificial materials and the jarring iron blade shroud the figure in a cloud of secrecy and imbue it with a sense of potent intimidation. This combination of figural and abstract forms is symbolic of the object's spiritual power, which it wields in Senufo communities through leaders who straddled both human and spiritual worlds.
