Description

Teke moon shaped masks are worn by members of the Kiduma – a secret society that takes charge of social celebrations and rituals. The Teke face mask is a round moon-shaped disk that is flat, decorated with abstract geometric motifs, with horizontal stripes that are painted with white or red background and painted on top with dark earthy colors such as blue, black and browns. These stripes are arranged symmetrically along both vertical and horizontal axis of the African Teke mask and they portray an abstractly interpreted human face and at the same time, the design is a composition of symbols. They are coloured with clay and paint.
