Mbunda
Wood
41 cm x 46 cm

Private collection, UK

Mbunda Sachihongo masks are characterized by their round shape, proportionally exaggerated features, and prominent brow ridge and cheeks. The sculptors responsible for these works were heavily influenced by neighboring Chokwe artists renowned for their play back and forth between realistic and bombastic exaggeration of different elements of the human physiognomy.

Sachihongo most commonly represents the spirit of a cultural archetype — an ancestral hunter armed with a bow. The elevated status of the subject is such that it may also be addressed as an ancestral chief or diviner. A male dancer would have worn the mask along with a knit fiber costume, a skirt of palm leaves, and other accessories, including anklets. Equipped with a bow and arrow, and carrying a flywhisk or ceremonial axe, Sachihongo dances to a rapid tempo.

Shipping via express courier (unless requested otherwise) within 24hrs after payment is received. Tracking number will be provided. Signature upon delivery. Fully insured.
