This is a wonderful Carved Wood Bearded Lega Mask from the DRC. For the Lega the ultimate goal is to reach the uppermost level of "Bwami" when one would become a "Kindi," one who exercises moral influence within society. The complex system of instruction, initiation and advancement in Bwami uses masks and figures to document the various levels of Bwami and to serve as badges validating the initiate’s knowledge of the secrets of Bwami and of their rank. This mask would be a wonderful addition your collection.
Late 20th Century
The mask shows age, some discoloration and loss of paint, but in good condition
