This is a very wonderful Hand Carved Wood Pende Mask from the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. This mask has the traditional diamond shape face with red, wide and pointed ears. The Pende are known for their numerous artistic forms ranging from house decorations, figurative sculptures and a wide variety of masks. It is to masks from the Kwilu region that the association to Pende is made. Figures among the Pende are not noted as often as the masks and when identified are known as ancestor figures or maternity figures placed on the roofs of chief’s houses other female figures are placed near the doorway. However the deeply sculpted face with its extraordinary near cubist like carving of the nose, eyes and ears is the product of a Pende carver. A wonderful addition to your collection.
