Decorative wooden mask made of Kola Wood

This beautiful mask is a real asset for any apartment. The wooden mask was carved by an artist from the Bateke tribe, which lives in Central Africa.

The Bateke originally lived in the estuary of the Kasai river meeting the Congo and made a living of fishing, agriculture and hunting. From the 15th century onwards they became successful traders and used the rivers as transport routes. Their empire was decentralized and held together by kings. The power was distributed to local chiefs.
Masks of this type were originally used to worship the sun. They were used to appease the sun god - hence the round shape.
