Large Old songye Male Kifwebe Mask

Good provenance

The Songye have created these masks among the most impressive of the art of Black Africa.
The male Kifwebe masks are real modern sculptures with very audacious architecture, exuberant shapes and volumes.
They evoke us instantly Cubism.

The streaks that cover almost their entire surface would be a reminiscence of the labyrinthic course that is the initiation Bukishi
