LEGA, BWAMI MASKS, DRC

These masks were used in instruction and initiation ceremonies into the five progressive levels of Bwami, the association that Lega men rise through with lifelong learning and deeds. Most have raffia beards. The first measurement is the height of the mask, the second is the height including the raffia.
