Kwésé mask - SOLD OUT

Little is known about the art of the Kwésé. It can be assumed that it is close, by many points, to the Suku. Among the Kwésé the generic term to express the mask is Mukishi. As with their neighbors, the masks were used for circumcision and initiation ceremonies. They may appear during the burial or investiture of a chief. Note an important characteristic among the Kwésé, the faces are often in the shape of a heart.
