Mid last century - Good condition
Authentic male KIFWEBE mask of the SONGYE tribe - D.R. Congo
Large mask. Dimensions: Height: 48 cm - Width 23 cm. Depth 24 cm Weight 1,300 grams. Comes without stand.
The mask has a unique line pattern and has a predominantly black colour with some red and white kaolin clay.
There are clear traces of wear and tear inherent to tribal use. (have a good look at the pictures which are part of the description)
The holes around have different diameters and have clearly been made by hand. The inside also has a beautiful patina that is related to use.
In a modern interior this mask will really come to its right thanks to its almost modernist look!
Part of a small specialized SONGYE collection:
Brought back by a Belgian mining engineer, who worked in the copper and malachite mining for the Union Minière du Haut Katanga.
I have posted some pictures from his photo album that are not included.
Comes with a description and a picture of AFRICANART.
Will be sent by registered mail.

Both lots are beautiful and correspond exactly to the description and pictures provided by the seller. Fast delivery and very good packaging. Very professional service altogether.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.The item was correct and the packaging good enough. The documentation was not in English. The item's true value was not stated, instead the number was 500€ (which I assume is the insurance maximum).Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hi, the true value is much higher than the Price you payed for it, the indicated Price on the shipping document has no effect on you, but the shipping compagny is perhaps more carefull. The Certificate is alway's in Dutch, as i am a Dutch seller, just as the discription on Catawiki is also in Dutch, nowhere i write that the ( free ) Certificate would be in English
You are Pleased with the item, and the Packaging was good, i Delivered as quickly as possible so i can not understand why you don't be a sport and give a positive feedback. Best Africanart.
