A Pende Mask, Mbuya
Democratic Republic of Congo, early to mid 20th century

Literature: Z.S.Strother, Pende

Wood, blackened on front with white pigments in the grooves on forehead, around eyes, and ears. Woven raffia collar and large headdress attached at top. In very good condition, appropriate for age, medium, and origin.

Mbuya masks are danced in village theatrical performances that use parody and drama to explore moral and judicial principles central to Pende society. In addition to representing typical village personalities, mbuya masks personify a whole range of characters and their attributes, including the chief and his authority, and the diviner and his knowledge of occult forces.
