Product remarks

  • The unique item shown on the image is the exact item you will receive.
  • Ngady a Mwaash is the female mask in a triad of Kuba royal masks. The color and designs on these masks are important symbols. Red suggests suffering' white stands for mourning; and blue means high rank or status. Triangles signify hearthstones and demesticity, and the lines under the eyes represent tears indicating the hardships of women. The strip of beadwork that covers the mouth of the mask indicates the silence of women. The mask - which is worn by men - is used in funerary and initiation ceremonies, as well as in the yearly retelling of the story of the origins of the Kuba people.
