Ngombe Mask (N° 13893) Deposit sale

Ex French African art collection.
This ancient African mask shares a streaked nasal ridge with the sculpture Ngbaka and that of the Ngbandi. It extends here on the forehead of a scarification in the ear. The large orbits surrounded by a rib appear to be washed of any kaolin residue, some of which remain set deep in the smooth surface of the wood. Haloes show washes or contact with moisture. Metal shows the teeth in the quadrangular mouth. Damaged lower edges. In the north-west of Zaire, south of Oubangui, on the banks of the Lualaba, live the 120,000 Ngombe , led by a leader and a war like elombe. Their neighbors are the Ngbandi and the Ngbaka whose statuary has influenced their tribal sculpture, and various groups banda. Their masks of geometric appearance intervene during the rites of society mani . They also produce hunting fetishes with protective aims, and prestige objects adorned with tapestry nails.
