Former collection Belgium; it would have been collected during a trip of an employee of the UMHK (Mining Union of Upper Katanga) in the region of Goma.
The Pongdudu masks cannot be mistaken because of their characteristic allure.
We can recognise these by their expression, strongly marked by a wide smile, often toothed like it is the case here, and especially by the famous protruding ears, which can sometimes be articulated.
It seems that these masks were worn by the bravest warriors.
