Hairpin Kete (N° 22972) Deposit sale

On the concavity model of the lulua masks, the figurative motif of the pin is a head extending from a ringed neck. Brown satin patina.
The Kete, established between the Luba and the Songye, intermingled with the Kuba and the Tschokwe and derived their subsistence from hunting, net fishing, and agriculture. Their matrilineal society worshiped nature spirits called mungitchi through offerings and incantations.
Believing in reincarnation, they also fear a supreme god called mboom. The rituals of their initiation societies are different from those of the Kuba. Some Kete villages used to pay tax to the King of the Kuba. Groups borrowed masks from their neighbors or picked up certain features that they combined with their own creations.  

Possibility of payment in 2x (2x 42.5 €)
