Happy with my new bedroom look, my ex-partner used to say I had 'very spooky taste' because I like tribal and taxidermy.... But all my tribal is just tourist art no malignant spirits are disturbed #africanmasks #bamilekefeatherheaddress #kashmirshawl

Walking around the old French capital of West Africa of Saint Louis in northern Senegal 🇸🇳 is like stepping back in time. It's an island right off the coast with dilapidated colonial building converted into cafes, restaurants, and artisan shops. Entering this vendor's shop of West African masks and statues was an eye popping experience. Even though the country is 90% Muslim, many still maintain belief in animist traditions. Masks and statues hold special meaning and can be used for a variety of reasons, such as initiations, naming ceremonies, fertility, etc. #senegal #westafrica #saintlouis #animist #africanmasks

Western Pende Tribe Mbuya Mask from the DRC - Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa. An exceptional specimen, on stand. Mid 20th century $439

This is one of the many anthropomorphic and zoomorphic characters that comprise the mbuya masks form of the western Pende.
All mbuya masks are named, and many are danced in theatrical performances that use parody and drama to explore moral and judicial principles central to Pende society.
These masks personify a whole range of characters and their attributes, including the chief and his authority and the diviner and his knowledge of occult forces as well as well known village stereotypes.

Particular kinds of music, dance steps, costumes and paraphernalia are central to creating the visual narrative in which each mask is featured.
Mbuya masks are also used in men's circumcision ceremonies and in hunting and planting rites.
The 500,000 Pende people are mainly farmers who produce millet, maize, plantain, and peanuts.
The women do the majority of the farm work and are wholly responsible for selling goods in the community markets.
The men help with the clearing of the fields and also contribute to the diet with occasional hunting and fishing in the numerous local rivers.
The sculptor’s profession is transmitted from father to son. Mbuya, or sculptured wooden masks in the form of human or animal faces, were worn with prescribed costumes by graduates of the Mukanda initiation school in their coming-out rites.
Zanzibar offers a huge selection of authentic danced masks from Africa, Oceania, Mexico, central and South America as well as Indonesia - MOST of which we show by appointment.
