Item Details
Description
A Suku Helmet Mask, Democratic Republic of the Congo 

wood, paint, raffia, beads

The Suku tribe is split into two groups, one that is located in the Masi-Manimba region in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the other in Angola. The northern Suku do not produce wood sculpture as often as the southern Suku. Suku masks are made for ceremonial use, such as the ritual of circumcision. Masks of the Suku are sometimes adorned with horns or small animals, such as dogs or antelopes, on top of the head. Suku masks are characterized by full-featured faces and a muted, natural color palette.
