$3,950.00
Situated in the northwest, the Ngbaka used masks within the scope of the initiation and circumcision rituals, called gaza: “that which gives strength”.
Masks in the Uele and Ubangi regions are very rare, but common characteristics include a scarification pattern in the form of a vertical ridge over the nose, similar to the nose scarifications dictated by tribal customs.
Included is a custom-built metal stand.
