Nice big mask of the Bapende/Pende, with in this case a pretty large head for a Pende mask, oval round with an elongated throat piece "beard". Nice colour use in dark earth tones and white kaolin, with a special hairstyle with a bun on the forehead.
The Pende is especially a tribe of artists and sculptors.
