Konso Things to Do: 4 reviews and 4 photos
The wagas are very famous in the Konso area, When a Konso warrior die, the statue of the warrior is recognizable by a phallic ornament at his forehead or by its large size. At the sides of the warrior-statue you will find the statues of his wives ornated with necklaces and breasts.
It is a pity, that the erection of wagas is dying out as result of the wide spread theft. Also the work of missionaries has discouraged the ancestor worship.
At the markets and along the roadside you can buy miniature wagas as souvenir.
Directions: Konso lies 110 KM south of Arba Minch
