Midden 20e eeuw - Vintage - gebruikt met zichtbare tekenen van slijtage

Wood.
Former collection Belgium, collected in the bush by its former owner, during a safari.

This flattened mask comes from the Kumu or Komo ethnic group, established in the north of the D.R. Congo.
In these wide, instable forest regions, we can find many little groups with porous styles, who have influenced themselves respectively, since a long time. Initiatory societies are the norm in this region, for example, in the Ituri forests.
This one is no exception, with its simple and expressive style.

Cf. L'âme de l'Afrique, S. Diakonoff.
