Object description :

"Téké Kidumu Mask - D.r.c."
TEKÉ mask Kidumu from the Tsaayi.
The Democratic Republic of Congo.
From a Belgian collector.
Sending with Bpost and Trace.
The Teke used moon-shaped masks - flat, decorated with abstract geometric patterns, cut in half by a horizontal band, colored with white or red earth, painted black, blue and brown. They describe a human face interpreted in an abstract way. At the same time, the design is a composition of symbols. Teke masks are worn by members of the Kidumu Society either at the funeral of chiefs, weddings or important meetings.
