A passionate about Congolese art (tribal and colonial) who collected the fabulous set of diverse and varied objects.


The masculine Bwadi Bwa Kifwebe society is responsible for maintaining control, order and law among the Songye people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Community leaders use witchcraft (buchi) and magic (masende) to force the desired behaviour; to exploit the powers of the buchi and the masende, Kifwebe masks (literally meaning “mask”) are danced.

It is believed that the power of these masks provides richness and supernatural capacities to the members of the Bwadi Bwa Kifwebe. Sources also report their use for the enthronement or funerals of chiefs, for initiation rites of young boys, but also in meetings of the secret society.
