African Mask Hemba Monkey Mask Congo

$275.00

This is a fabulous small Hemba Monkey Mask from the peoples of Zaire in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The extremely stylized chimpanzee masks are called mwisi gwa so'o a term that alludes to the "spirit-ivested object of the chimpanzee human" that inhabits the mask. The mwisi gwa so'o masqueraders wear a costume of animal skin, barkcloth and the hair of Colobis monkeys. Their raucous dances, performed at funeral and memorial services, reflect Hemba ideas about death and social chaos and stand in diametrical opposition to the otherwise ordered world of the living. A very fascinating and symbolic mask that was collected in the field, shows age and has a nice patina. This would be a wonderful addition to your home.
