KUBA STYLE
PWOOM ITOK MASKS

The pwoom itok mask was part of the Kuba royal circle of masks. It is a simple dance mask. The eyes are surrounded by small holes and the mask is attached to an elaborate headdress consisting of feathers and raffia cloth. The dancer who wears the mask plays a wise, tired old man whom the other dancers come to consult. Masks 7 and 8 are a type that has horns curving around the eyes.
