Mid 20th century - Reasonably good condition
Authentic male KIFWEBE mask of the SONGYE/LUBA tribe - D.R. Congo Rare piece! WITH DOUBLE EYES!
Such a mask with double eyes can only be found in the border area of the Songye with the LUBA, also have a look at the round mouth.
Large mask. Dimensions: Height: 47 cm - Width 25 cm. Depth 19 cm Weight 1.100 grams Comes without stand.
The mask has a unique line pattern and has a predominantly black and white colour of 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.
