In addition to the mask bavobongo, or kpongadomba of the Boa with oversized ears, as were the ear pavilions of the Eastern Boa in the past, the Boa also carved another type of mask, such as this specimen whose use remains unknown. Under an ovoid forehead, the eyebrow arches shelter flattened orbits. The geometrical protruding nose runs towards a rectangular mouth filled with teeth. The winged ears frame the face laterally, protruding from the arches. The mask is divided into two colors, golden beige and cream.
Close to the Mangbetu and Zande, the Boa inhabit the savannah in the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Some Boa are said to have used these masks to educate children since the pacification of the Uele region.
