Materials: Wood.Presumed age: Mid 20th century. Hunting mask "Mfondo", from the Lwalwa ethnic group - Democratic Republic of Congo.Marks of use, worn.Among the Lwalwa, we have identified two major categories of masks:feminine, Mushika or Kashika distinguished from others by a very elaborate hairstyle, and male masks, of which the Mfondo (or Mvondo) is a part, and which is very similar to the Nkaki. Lwalwa masks are always of great plastic force and remarkable abstraction.They had an important role in the Bangongo dance of the hunting ritual.And when the hunters returned empty-handed, the ancestors' spirits were appeased by organizing a dance.These masks were also used in the rituals of the Ngongo secret society, which was in charge of the initiation and circumcision of young boys in the village.The masks performed during dances governed by a complex choreography and were to appease the ancestors' spirits and force them to intervene.They still play an important role in the secular ceremonies in which they perform, for retribution.
