Ngombe Mask (N° 27292)

This African mask whose reduced size indicates that it could be brandished during dance ceremonies, shares with the Ngbaka sculpture and that of the Ngbandi a striated nasal bridge. Semi-satin grainy patina.
In the north-west of Zaire, south of the Oubangui, on the banks of the Lualaba, live the 120,000 Ngombe Bantu-speaking people, led by a chief and a warrior society Elombe i>. Their neighbors are the Ngbandi and the Ngbaka whose statuary had an influence on their tribal sculpture, and different banda groups. Their geometric-looking masks are used during the rites of the mani society. They also produce hunting fetishes with protective purposes, and prestigious objects decorated with upholstery nails.
