African mask with an ample rounded volume on which the only reliefs of the ridged nose and large perforated ears surmount a powerful curved jaw. The head bears decorative incisions evoking a braided hairstyle.
Beautiful dark satin patina. Minimal losses, abrasions and splits.
In the north-west of Zaire, south of Oubangui, on the banks of the Lualaba, live the 120,000 Ngombe of the Bantu language, led by a chief and a warrior society Elombe. Their neighbors are the Ngbandi and the Ngbaka whose statuary has had an influence on their tribal sculpture, and various banda groups. Their masks of geometric appearance intervene during the rites of the mani society. They also produce protective hunting fetishes and prestige objects adorned with upholstery nails.
