Product Description

 

Two masks for the price of one !!

 

You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to show your appreciation for African Art. Maybe you are looking for something a little extra to highlight a mud cloth pillow, a little statue that sits on a table or maybe something to fill that nagging blank corner on the wall!

 

Our small masks are perfect! They are low cost but the best part is that they are Authentic! These items were not made for the trade. They have been gathered after actual use during public festivals!

This set includes 2 BaLuba Masks:

 

The BaLuba of the southern part of the Congo empire was founded in 1585. At its peak over 1 million people paid tribute to the Luba king. Kifwebe masks also attributed to the Songye people were used in a Luba dance called "makaye a Kifwebe'' which means "dance of the mask." The Kifwebe was used when the chief of the village either dies or was newly appointed or when an important dignitary arrives at the village. The facial components include a wide and pronounced nose, oversized eyes with enlarged eyelids and a protruding box like mouth. The larger mask is female as evidenced by the round shape and the lack of a frontal head crest. The mask has been tastefully pigmented in shades of tan and dark brown. The smaller BaLuba has been adorned with a fluffy native bird feather trim.

Dimensions: 7 7/8 inches long x 6 inches across

Smaller mask: 5 inches long and I did not measure all the way to the outermost feather x 7 inches across. Measurements include feathering.

This makes for a wonderful African accent combo!
