Kidumu Facial Mask - Teke/Tsayi - DRC, former Zaire
During the 19th century, the Tsayi, a Teke group, formed an important people who lived between the Louessé River and the Upper Ogooué.

Since then, they have been creating wooden masks in a quite particular shape: this is a polychrome disc presenting symmetries in relation to the vertical and horizontal axes.
Thin slits were carved at the level of the eyes, as well as holes on the border of the disc, in order to insert fibres or feathers.

The Kidumu dancer plays with the symmetries of the mask by swirling, doing the wheel, allowing various interpretations of the motifs decorating it.

Height - 35 cm

Width - 27 cm
