Luba Zoomorphic Mask (N° 18767)

Ex-collection german african art.
Small african mask of reduced volume depicting an animal. In its more important version, it was worn in company of a circular kifwebe mask accessorized with a voluminous raffia collar that concealed the dancer. This type of mask forms a fetish sculpture with a protective purpose. These masks occurred during different traditions: investitures, funerals, and rites against witchcraft in the different initiatory societies. In the eastern part of the Luba region, important ceremonies take place in homage to the ancestors of the clan, deceased chiefs, and to the new moon. Offerings are then made to nature spirits, who act as intermediaries between the group and the ancestors. Watch the video
