Detailed Description

African tribal art. A Mbuti Lendu Ituri (DRC) mask. Ethnographic antique.

A wooden Ituri mask with linear decoration over a kaolin ground. The mask has been used and has ‘nose rubbing’ patina on the inside. 2nd half 20th century, possibly earlier. It has a small label which says Lendu DRC. The mask edge has holes running its entire circumference which would have been used for attaching a raffia/glass type fringe.

The Ituri rain forest is a region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The Mbuti Lendu and Ndaka use these masks to represent ancestor spirits. The masks incorporate painted designs on their surfaces, similar to the painted bark-cloth textiles of the Mbuti. A single pattern is repeated over the entire surface. The mask is both attractive and aggressive.

Dimensions: 29cm long x 21cm wide x 12.5cm deep
Weight: 380gms
Condition: Superb. An attractive mask.
