Rare and Antique Muserongo Tribal Mask. Congo / Zaire, Africa

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

This came from an estate sale in the US of an avid collector of very old masks.  It was one of the few masks that were not identified other than a tag saying it was from the mid- to late- 1800s.  I think it is from the Murerongo tribe of Zaire / DRC / Congo because of it full face, heavy features, open mouth and squared-off teeth.

For the Serious Collector.
