Luba funerary mask

1 item left

We present a funerary mask of the Bantu-speaking Luba ethnic group living in southern Congo. All the characteristics of these masks appear, it is made of wood, the face always round, the mouth an open rectangle, the eyes that seem closed, they look protectively since they are used when a boss or an eminent person dies.
We appreciate its originality in the colors that although they are still brown, as is typical in these masks, in this case they are unusually clear tones.
Once again we were ecstatic with the beauty and elegance of these African masks, which bring us modernity since the night of times.
