    Lega culture, Democratic Republic of Congo
    First half of the 20th century
    Wood and kaolin
    H.: 20 ; L.: 15 ; Th.: 7 cm
    (old accident)

    Anthropomorphic mask in wood of oval shape with openwork eyes underlined by small circular perforations. The superciliary arches are drawn in two arcs of a circle meeting to form the nasal ridge. These lines are underlined by successive incised weights. His mouth draws a light smile, half-opened on small teeth.
    The face of the mask itself forms a stylized heart, highlighted with white kaolin.

    He danced during the initiation rite of the Bwani.
