Early to mid-XXth. - Good condition.

Pende Mbangu, represents a cursed man, someone who has been struck by sickness or has had deformities cast upon him by sorcerers.
Height: 32 cm, width 22 cm. tribal patina.
Origin: The mask comes from the Central Pende region in the Bandundu province, south of Zaïre.

Provenance: This Pende masks comes from a old Belgian collection

Mbangu masks have the power to heal when worn during a dance performed around a sick person. Someone healed in this way might carry a miniature ivory mask, preferably a replica of the mask that healed him. The mask shows that a curse can strike — like lightning — without warning.
