Mahongwe mask (N° 21662)

Mahongwe mask, whose projecting features and narrow concave face ending in a point could have been one of the sources of inspiration for Cubism. Thick flaking patina. The Mahongwe (Mahongwe) are about 15,000 people living in the east of Gabon. Close to the Kota, they are known for their figures of reliquary guardians similar to the heads of Naja deployed and covered on the face with juxtaposed copper wires. The Mahongwe, Obamba, Shamayé and Sango form a group with similar rites and society with the Kota. They live in the eastern part of Gabon among the forests. Some of them have crossed the border into Congo after having gone up the sources of the Ogooué.
