Kumu, Komo mask (N° 21591)

African mask of circumcision, coming from Ituria. The specificity of this African mask of the Komo lies in its large gaping eyes and its sharp teeth. The abrupt block of the nose reinforces the aggressiveness of this face marked with deep oblique scarifications. Abraded velvety patina.

The Kumu live primarily in the northeast and central regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their Bantu language is Komo or Kikomo . Several ethnic groups are closely intertwined, with similar associations: the Mbole, Yela, Lengola, and Metoko. Their artistic production also has great similarities with that of the Metoko and Lengola. Their divination masks were exhibited at the closing ceremonies of the initiation and circumcision of the youth of the nkunda society.
