KETE STYLE
Mask 6
15.5" high x 8" wide x 8" deep
$300

Despite its traditional form and appearance, this mask shows no signs of age and use and was probably made to be sold. There is some wood loss around the top opening.

The Kete people lived along the southern border of the Kuba kingdom. Their helmet masks have similarities to several types of Kuba masks, with abstract geometric patterns executed in paint or carving, conical eyes, raffia woven caps and attachments.
