This is a fabulous Old Carved Wood Suka Helmet Mask with Raffia from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This mask would be worn during male initiation ceremonies, and are also they represented all departed ancestors. Neighbors of the Yaka, Suku masks are more conservative in their facial treatments. Although styles vary, there is usually a massive collar of raffia. These masks are supposedly an image of the community of deceased elders, notably the chiefs of the maternal lineage. They are used to promote success in the hunt, to heal, and to punish criminals. They were also worn by dancers during certain initiation ceremonies. This is a lovely Suka helmet mask and would be a great addition to your collection.
