SONGYE KALEBWE KIFWEBE KIKASHI MASK
This African kifwebe mask is characterized by a soft shape, but it is not a round Baluba mask. The head is usually pear-shaped, swollen, and extends into a narrow neck. The eyes are closed and connected by a midline that runs through the forehead and nose. The mouth is very surprising because it is oval, not square, rectangular or even cross-shaped, like the bifwebe masks we are accustomed to from the Pine Leaf, Luba and other Kalebwe groups. This mask is thought to have come from southern Kalebwe.
