The Mwaash aMbooy is composed of wood, skin and raffia cloth. This mask represents the king. It was assumed that masks were worn during the time of Queen Labaam, whose name and ideas during her reign were suggestive of carvings. If you follow traditions, the masks can be found in the time of chieftains. There is an ncok song which mentions a bwoom mask from this time. The song also mentioned what decorations were required for the masks. It was the time when cowrie shells and beads were applied to the surface of these masks.

  • 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.
