Maschera - Legno - Kela-Mongo - Repubblica Democratica del Congo

Descrizione
Maschera - Legno - Kela-Mongo - Repubblica Democratica del Congo
Prima metà XX secolo - Buone condizioni

Very rare mask of the Kela people living in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
They are a small sub-tribe of Mbole which they share the same Lilwa secret society and whose works are closely related.
The pieces can be regognized by their two-tone bands, in this case red and white.
It emerges from this mask a powerful attraction that impresses with its originality.
The mask has slited eyes.
The layer of red and white pigment and kaolin is a bit crusty.
The inside shows signs of heavy use during many years.
This is an exceptional piece by its quality, its fine condition, its rarity.
Ex collection UK.
Now in my personal Dutch collection.
