Tanzania Mask (N° 16706)

This rare mask depicting a stranger was once implanted with human hair that remains dotted on the skull, eyebrows, chin and mustache. The realistic face was painted dark red. Desication cracks, xylophageal fingerprints now eradicated.
In the southern region of Tanzania's coastline, around Dar-es-Salam, a relatively homogeneous group produced most of the artistic productions. It includes Swahili, Kaguru, Doé, Kwéré, Luguru, Zaramo, Kami. The second region is a territory covering southern Tanzania as far as Mozambique, home to some Makonde and Yao, Ngindo, Mwéra, and Makua. In northeastern Tanzania, the Chaga, Paré, Chamba, Zigua, Maasai, Iraqw, Gogo, and Hehe have an artistic production with similarities to Malagasy and Batak art, which could be explained by trade by sea. Luo, Kuria, Haya and Ziba, Kéréwe, Karagwé, Sukuma and Nyamézi are established in central west and central Tanzania. Along the shores of Lakes Tanganyika and Nyasa, and Lake Nyassa, the Ha, Jiji, Bendé, Tongwé, Holoholo, Fipa, Manbbe, Kondé, Kisi and Ngoni have produced figurative statues, terracotta sculptures and inserted tooth masks.
