Lula mask (N° 22831)

This mask offers elements reminiscent of the traditional sculpture of the Lula's close neighbors: Nkanu, Holo, Zombo, and Yaka. Like these groups, they make use of colored pigments. The face sculpted in relief is surrounded by a flat part giving the whole the appearance of a shield, from which two forms stand out: the upper part of the face with strong jowls, and a mouth like that of a skeleton.

Crusty matte patina. Abrasions.

This ethnic group close to the Yaka is settled along the Nséki River in the south-west of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Lula live in small autonomous villages, hunting and fishing.
We notice on their sculptures scarifications close to those of the Téké while the headdresses and the general morphology of the objects are close to the art of the Yaka.
