Ziba Mask

Tanzania 

Mask. Ziba Culture, Tanzania

The Ziba are an ethnic group from the far western region of Tanzania, along the lower shores of Lake Victoria. Ziba masks are considered to have borrowed and incorporated features found in masks from nearby north western DRC, such as inserted teeth, a decorated surface and primal expression. 

A series of curved striations, accentuating the eyebrows and forehead, decorate the surface of this fine mask. Traces of resin are present below the eyes and around the mouth, and the surface of the mask exhibits a worn patina as a result of traditional use. 

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (1940's - 1950's)
