BAKONGO, MASKS, Congo

Along with their neighbors, the Yombe, the Bakongo people had white-faced masks that were associated with the spirit world. They were less common than their better known fetish or power figures, but some share the glass eyes, magic cavities and inserted nails of those figures.

Despite their appearance, our Bakongo masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
