A huge Bwoom Helmet mask from the Bushoong Kuba people of the D.R. Congo. According to legend, Bwoom was sent to Earth by his father (the great God Woot), to establish the Kuba kingdom. This enormous example is 17” high, 12” wide and is masterfully carved. The face is decorated with inlaid beads and has a finely polished patina. An impressive example with great presence. Comes with custom stand.
