Lwalwa Mask

Lwalwa (Balwalwa), Formerly Zaire, now Congo. Wood. Pigments.
Height 13"

The geometric configurations playing between round and triangular planes made this mask not only interesting but powerfully engaging and handsome. The imaginative creativity of the carvers cannot be gain- said. This one could be one of those masks that would be noticed in any collection.
Used for initiation ceremonies.
A great conversational piece!
