African Mask Kuba Cloth Helmet Mask

$316.20 $372.00

This is a fabulous Wood Carved Kuba Mask with a Beaded Headdress with Cowrie Shells from the the Congo. Kuba mythology revolves around three figures, each represented by a masquerade character: Woot, the creator and founder of the ruling dynasty; Woot’s spouse; and Bwoom. Bwoom’s specific identity varies according to different versions of the myth. He may represent the king’s younger brother, a person of Twa descent, or a commoner. Embodying a subversive force within the royal court, the Bwoom masquerade is often performed in conflict with the masked figure representing Woot. A wonderful mask to add to your collection.
