Bwami Lukungu mask - Lega - Congo

€225.00
small lukungu bone masks refer explicitly
to the skulls of the deceased great initiates. We are here in the logic of an ancestor cult, whether lega or bembe, but a cult where only the great initiates who are deceased acquire, by the treatment of their skulls, and through the symbols that are the masks, the fullness of immortality, and therefore of a certain sacrality.
