Hand Beaded Congo Zaire Wood Mask
(You save )
Bright beadwork adorns the serene features of a river goddess. Salihu Ibrahim creates an image from the Pende people of Zaire. Tassels of red thread complement the trade seed beads, and the piece receives an antique finish. Invoked during purification ceremonies of lakes, rivers and streams, the goddess protects her people from drowning.
