Rungu Mask (N° 24345)

African mask with naturalistic features and whose functions remain unknown.
Dark lustrous patina, desiccation cracks, kaolin residue.
Tribe of the Tabwa group, the Rungu are established in a region between the R.D.C. (Democratic Rep. of Congo), Zambia and Tanzania. Under the influence of the neighboring Lubas and Bemba, the Rungu produced prestigious objects intended for dignitaries, stools, combs, spoons and scepters, frequently adorned with figures of couples or twins. Their king, called mwéné tafuna, lives in Zambia. A women's association, Kamanya, has dolls such as those of the Tabwas.
