Bwami initiation mask from the LEGA tribe from Congo. The life of the Lega (Warega) is regulated through the Bwami, to which both men and women belong.

There are seven levels for men and four levels for women. Masks were used for initiation to the first two levels of the Bwami society and repainted with Pembe each time they were used or displayed. Very nice mask with beautiful white patina. The mask has 3 faces and an ancestor figure on top and tribal figurations over the whole face. Good condition, possible traces of use.
