Kindombolo Pende mask - SOLD OUT
In East Pende African art, masks are known for their very geometric shapes like the African mask Panya Ngombe and Pumbu for example, of which our gallery has original copies.
Their expressiveness is enhanced by the use of colors.
It is a copy of the classic "Kindombolo-Mapombolo" mask meaning "shit fucker" or "trouble maker". There are variants with horns but more recent and less popular. This mask is a first generation piece with a raw look.
