This is a fabulous old Pende Door Panel from the Kasa Pende from the Eastern Congo. The Pende are known for their statues and are mostly found in their door panels. These panels are displayed outside of the huts of Chiefs to provide protection as well as proclaim the authority of the owners. These panels vary in size and can be very colorful, with the copious use of triangular incising, usually black and white. They use reddish and blue colors which is produced by the application of "tukula" powder, which comes from the camwood tree, and is obtained in trade from the Mbala. Masks of the Kasai Pende are frequently quite abstract. Kasai Pende, historically used in a variety of ceremonies, and rituals of divination and magic. Utilitarian and apoptotic objects are produced by both groups, and can usually be identified by their distinctive faces, with the classic brooding Pende eyes, and the various other designs that vary due to many regions. This old Pende Panel is very unique in its intricate detail and the talented artisans of the tribe. This wonderful panel would be a great addition to your collection. Shows age.
