Deeply Carved Luba Kuba Helmet Mask. Tribal. Ceremonial. DRC. Congo.
Look at the dynamic carvings of this helmet mask. The high and bulging forehead is quite normal for this ethnic group. But the depth and symbolism of the carvings is quite extraordinary. I have spent some time in trying to determine the significance of this but to no avail.
There are some age cracks but – for it’s age – it is in excellent condition. Stand is not included.
