Ziba / Haya Tanzania Mask (N° 17417)

Sober ovoid volume with a regular contour in which the eyes and mouth are hollowed out in oval. The right nose is highlighted with a bleached rib rising on the eyebrow arches and forehead and then extends to either side of the face to accentuate the symmetry. Smooth patina, light grainy residue, ochre abrading shards, in the center of the face. Crack at the top of the posterior outline.
The Ziba are based in the Kagera region of Tanzania, and also in Uganda. In the northeastern region of Tanzania, bordering Kenya, facing the Indian Ocean, live the tribes Paré, Shamba, Zigua, and Mbugu. A relative homogeneity characterizes the productions of these groups, recalling some of the Malagasy and Bataks with whom, through maritime trade, contact could once have been established.
