Dans masker - Hout - Bembe - DR Congo

Omschrijving
Dans masker - Hout - Bembe - DR Congo
Begin 20e eeuw - Uitstekend

Bembe mask.
Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Bembe people can be situated in the eastern part of the DR Congo, around the border with Tanzania. This classical object contains the typical elements of such dance and ceremonial face masks. First of all the shape, flattened at the bottom and rounded on top, then the large oval geometry with tiny yet expressive eyes and pierced mouth, and finally the subtle ornaments around the edges. The beautiful patina together with the nicely preserved white kaolin pigments add value to the excellent execution of this Bembe mask.
