BEMBE Mask

Typical BEMBE mask, with its large white eye sockets, its round eyes in relief and its wide mouth showing its teeth, giving off a strong presence.

Very expressive in its modernizing stylization.

The white of the orbits expresses a gaze turned towards the beyond, which gives it radiance, depth and meaning.
