Luba Animal Mask

DRC

Animal Mask. Luba Culture, DRC

 

This fine Luba animal mask, depicting a fierce baboon with a powerful expression, is part of a series of masks created by Luba artists in the 1960s. These masks depicted animals from the surrounding forest areas, and were used in traditional dance ceremonies.

 The mask has been carved from alight wood, which has been decorated with white natural pigments. An array of tropical bird feathers adorns the top of the mask, and fetish holes feature at the back. Attached to the mask is the original bark fibre costume.  

 

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (c. 1960's Or Before)
