Fine Tribal Arts Mask, Ituri Wood, 29 cm high, Democratic Republic of Congo. Provenance: Collection Gaëtan Schoonbroodt, Verviers,, collected before 1970. Some wood chips missing above the back of the mask ( see pictures )

Used for inititions during the cicumcision ceremonies.
The Ndaka people are an ethnic group of the northwestern Democratic Republic of the Congo, many of whom live in the Mambasa Territory of the Ituri Province

All young Ndaka men had to be initiated to be become full adult members of the tribe. The ceremonies are held every six years or so, and involve traditional songs and dances. In some of these special instruments are used, and masked ritualists act out prescribed roles dressed in full costume

Please note: Sold with written description of the tribe and private review by David Norden who guarantees this product's authenticity.
