    Songye Luba mask (A)

    The people of Songye are mainly known as a farming community, however they also take part in hunting and trading with other neighbouring communities. The distinct Songye style is easily recognisable in the Kifwebe mask by the mass of closely carved lines and bold shapes such as the protruding sagittal crest and X carved mouth. The intertwining of the red, black, and white colouring in these masks are said to symbolise the struggle between good (white) and evil (black and red) - the combination of these colours embodying the positive and dangerous force held within the mask. The ruggedness of the Kifwebe mask and its long raffia beard are said to symbolise the underworld and the spirits that escape from it. Further, it is believed that the sagittal crest and conical protrusion contain the magical strength of the mask.
    Dimensions: 44cm (17¼") High, 22cm (8¾") Wide, 22cm (8¾") Deep, with raffia the total length is 125.5 cm

Each edition contained unique lithographic prints, commissioned by the editor, and each cover a double-page lithograph elaborated by one of the artists contained within.
