Why We Love This

An African Songye mask from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The face of the mask is covered in the patterns of geometric grooves unique to Songye masks. Such a mask was one of the most powerful instruments of its culture and was used during ceremonies to preserve the power of chiefs, to judge and punish wrongdoers and to maintain order.
