This is a 20th century mask from the Kuba Tribe in DRC. The size indicates this mask was likely used every several years when a group of boys will be induced into manhood which transforms uncircumcised boys into initiated men who possess esoteric knowledge. The mask is in very good condition with some wear, light cracking, a few missing shells etc. Overall the mask has held up wonderfully and is very solid. Let us know if you have any questions, we are here to help.
