In Very Good Condition - First half of the 20th Century: 1925s/1940s - Height: 22 centimetres

This type of anthropomorphic shaped LEGA mask crowned with horns is named ‘KAYAMBA’.

They are considered to be rare and only exist in some parts of the LEGA region.

This is probably the only type of masks which was worn on the face.

Made in a very light weighted and coloured wood, it is graphically very attractive, still with its traces of Kaolin.

Provenance: former Coomans de Brachene Collection.

Moreover, the collection of all these (little) LEGA masks is one of the most attractive Africana collections.

Aside from their symbolic aspect related to the Bwami society, the design of these Lega objects, in all dimensions, is very attractive and we can perfectly understand why artists of the 20th century were impressed by the graphical purity of these representations.

No reserve price.

Free registered shipment Worldwide.
