Good condition - 2nd half of the 20th century

Beautiful oval mask, with the face in the shape of a heart and protruding eyes in the form of coffee grains, the scarifications are made with holes smeared with kaolin.
Brown patina with traces of wear.
Height: 25 cm. Width: 16 cm.
The Bwami society represents the path through which LEGA men and women try to reach moral excellence, beauty, wisdom and prestige. Organised in five stages, or levels, for men, and three for women, the Bwami is a society of volunteers that is open to all the members of the community. It accompanies and supervises a person throughout his life.
As the LEGA say: “something that sticks, leaves a trace”. Most men and women enter this society as novices, but only a few reach the kindi, the highest level.
Provenance: Belgian Family Collection, Brussels (Belgium).
Shipment with track and trace, but it can also be picked up on site.
