2nd half 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

Object: Mask (More lots)
Indigenous object name: Kholuka
Ethnic group/ culture: Yaka
Region/ country: Congo DRC
Material: Wood
Period: 2nd half 20th century
Condition: Good condition, used with some signs of wear
Sold with stand: No
Dimensions: 60×30×30 cm

We can recognise the Yaka style by the upturned nose, the polychromy and especially the chubby figure on the summit of the mask.

This mask served for circumcision or Mbala ceremonies for the Ngoni and the Yiwilla clans of the Yaka. Hence, the figure represented on the summit is a young circumcised man.


Light-weighted polychrome wood in blue, red, white and patinated fabric for the puppet. I can also provide the raffia part of the mask which I removed.

    Catalogues ok. Mais il est totalement anormal de facturer des frais d'envoi 18€ alors que le coût réel est de 8€ (lot de 1,2 kg envoi de France vers la France). Aucune communication avec le vendeur.
