Mask- Bena Lulua People, D.R.Congo - Sold

Lulua is an umbrella name, which refers to a large number of peoples who populate the region near the Lulua River, between the Kasai and Sankuru rivers.
The considerable area they occupy, explains the many stylistic overlappings with their neighbors. One way to identify a Lulua mask is the deep set concave eyes. The Lulua masks represent the spirits of their ancestors and were more than likely used for circumcision and funeral ceremonies.
