Product Description

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 a BaSongye Mask:

The BaSongye of Southeast Zaire have local rulers, the Sultani Ya and an influential secret society, the Bwadi Bwa Kifwebe. The most famous mask created by the Songye, the Kifwebe, is worn in connection with the secret society. The mask can be either male if a top head crest is present or if displaying a plain coiffure, female. The mask offered is a female mask. Female masks essentially reflect positive forces and appear in dances held at night such as lunar ceremonies. The mask has the powerful capacity to heal by means of the supernatural force that is thought to be housed in the mask itself. Beautiful natural real feathery detailing outlines the bottom of this mask.

Dimensions: 7 inches long x7 inches wide. This measurement includes the feathering.

This set includes a larger Kongo Mask:

The Kongo people are a large ethnic group that reside in territories now know as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola and Zaire. They were extremely exploited by European slave traders. In the early 20th century, they became one of the most active ethnic groups in the efforts to decolonize Africa, helping to liberate the three nations to self governance. They now occupy influential positions in the politics, administration and business operations in the three countries they are most found in. During celebrations of unity masks such as the one offered here of fellow tribesmen, elders and ancestors are proudly displayed.

Dimensions: 9 1/2 inches long x 4 1/2 inches wide

These masks are beautiful authentic African wall hangings!
