The “Songye” are very renowned for their statuettes, large ones (about 70 to 90 centimetres high, sometimes less; collective) or smaller ones (generally less than 35 centimetres, in some cases less than 10 cm; individual). In fact, most statuettes that the iconography allows us to discover nowadays are of Kalebwe origin (Ekie and Ilande also, as well as Sanga, Mona and Tempa, who are neighbouring groups and occupy the western part of the Songye country, two of the sculptors photographed by Hersak are Kalebwe, the third one is Ciofwe - a neighbouring chieftaincy, which at the time of father Lumpungu and after a dispute, became independent from the Kalebwe chieftaincy), whereas most figurines come from the populations of the east of Lomami, and Kalebwe groups who we can find on the eastern bank of this river. Some very particular figurines presented a specific register of a very localised area in the east of the current so-called Songye country and a precise period, Lacks are visible on the figurine. The horn is missing and there are visible traces of ritual remains.
