Smooth, lustrous patina, abrasions and cracks.
These masks occurred in different traditions: investitures, funerals, and rites against witchcraft in the different initiatory societies. In the eastern part of the Luba region, important ceremonies are held in honor of the clan's ancestors, deceased chiefs, and the new moon. Offerings are then made to the spirits of nature, intermediaries between the group and the ancestors. Watch the video
