SALAMPASU, MASKS, DRC

The Salampasu have three mask types, representing grades of male society, hunters, warriors and chiefs. Worn during initiation and other rituals, most of them share a bulging forehead, deeply set eyes and pointed, or filed, teeth. Most of these, whether covered with thin copper sheeting or nor, are the warrior's mask style.
