Kuba mask (N° 23303)

The Biombo, Kuba sub-group, live at the intersection of the Lulua and Kasaï rivers in the D.R.C. It is during their initiation ceremonies and funerals that they use a specific African mask called cimwana, the latter presenting certain recurring aesthetic characteristics in the Kuba tribe, such as the use of patterns made up of triangular checkerboards in contrasting colours. The Kasai Luba, established among the Biombo, may also have influenced the style of their masks.
Satin patina, gaps and desication cracks.
