Mboom is the second ranking royal mask of the Kuba, brother to the Mwash a mboy mask which represents the king. The Mboom mask is the oldest type of mask of the Kuba, going back to the 18th century. This type of mask has never had any holes for eyes, it is the ‘blind’ Queen Mboom. The masks are always richly decorated, covered with copper sheet and beads. This mask is always at odds with his brother Mwash a mboy, for this mask represents the first king with the right to the throne.

good object and very good seller, fast shipping, thanks
Beautiful piece, unfortunately not old as told (beginning 20th century) but instead last quarter of th20th century. The patina is clearly not genuine, made and aged with the “smoking/smoked” process.
Nice item. Well packed. Thanks.
Very, very nice !
