Gorgeous KUBA LELE beaded mask. The mask is decorated with an amazing colorful bead work and full raphia.

The 20,000 Lele people occupy the western region of the KUBA kingdom and live from hunting and agriculture. Lele carvers produced face masks worn at the annual founding celebrations which are nearly flat and have slit eyes surrounded by multiple lines.

Lele masks are rare and this one is a true beauty. Good condition with a good patina of age.

Material: wood, cauri shell, african beads and rapphia.
