LEGA, POSTS AND FIGURES, DRC

Lega masks were used in instruction and initiation ceremonies into the five progressive levels of Bwami, the association that Lega men rise through with lifelong learning and deeds. Very little is known about the posts and figures. We do not know how, or if, they were used. Some, especially Posts 1 and 4, may not even be Lega.
