Mbagani Mask (N° 25155)

A singular structure for this Mbagani mask, a group from the now extinct Mpasu , itself a sub-group of the Lulua, or Béna Lulua , which also includes the Salampasu. The forehead overhangs geometric lines extended by the tip of a ridged chin. These masks would be associated with healing rites. The Mbagani form with the Ding a group of 50,000 individuals established in the D.R.C. near the Angolan border. They were marked by the influence of their Lunda neighbors and the former Tchokwé occupants. Organized into small independent chiefdoms, they mainly cultivate maize, the women embroidering the textiles woven by the men. Black satin patina, abrasions. (Black African tribal art, J.B.BACQUART)
