Minimalism in African art

This African mask is a typical example of the Mbole artistic corpus. His abstract lines and the use of pigment are also present in the statuary of this ethnic group.

This is a traditional mask called an "execution mask" because it is worn by the kumi, the person responsible for carrying out ritual punishment after an accusation of indiscretion during the Lilwa ritual.
The death of the victim allows the restoration of order.

We will appreciate the spectacular graphics of this flat mask, of which the ethnic groups of the North and East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have the secret.
