Rare Luba Mask, very similar to the Lion Mask on the cover of Faces of the Spirits: Masks from the Zaire Basin.
The facial expression appears settled and at peace while exhibiting an ominous presence; gracefully carved with a smooth surface, finessed around the almond shaped eyes, agape mouth and protruding ears, coated by dark oozing-like patina.
Angular incisions on both cheek bones, rectangular nose, and both ends of the frontal bone - notches on the chin designates a goatee.
