Description

Stylistic mask from the LULUA people of DR Congo. Lulua masks areĀ  rare and were probably used during circumcision and funeral ceremonies. They display enlarged eyes and complex scarification patterns on their cheeks. This detailed wooden mask is in good condition with a fine aged patina. The right ear contains a chip in the wood.
