Pende Mbuya mask
African mask from the Bapende ethnic group. Among the Pende, the term "mask" bears the generic name of "mbuya".
There is a wide variety of masks with different uses but intervening in the festivities of the community. Each mask somehow represents a specific character in what could be called a codified theatre.
