Pende Mbuya Pumbu mask

€290.00

Coming from a private Belgian collection, more specifically based in Ghent, this mask called Mask Mbuya jia kifutshi is of the Pumbu type, a hairstyle divided into three spiky parts, evoking the old black raffia headdress once worn by the Pende heads and their notables. These masks danced in the village during the reintegration of the young circumcised.
