Welcome to my collection of African tribal art.
~Celebrations of World Cultures~
Thank you for looking at my auction!!

I have fallen in love with these masks!
The beautiful  carvings!  The meaning of each mask.  
The cultural beliefs of the tribes.
 Very unique!


The African mask is considered among the finest creations in the art world and is highly sought after by art collectors.
Many of the pieces some replicas, can be viewed in museums and art galleries in many parts of the world.
Masks in Africa have great cultural and traditional significance.
Latest developments and understanding of Aesthetic principles, religious and ceremonial values, have brought about a greater insight into the ideas and moral values that African artists express in their art.

The Boa ethnic group comprises 200,000 savanna-dwelling people living in the northern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Each village is headed by a chief from the most prestigious clan.  The Boa are mainly farmers and are in frequent contact with Mangbetu and Zande.  The Boa are known principally for their masks, believed to be used in war-related ceremonies, to enhance the warrior's courage or to celebrate victories.  These masks have set-apart, prominent, round ears, suggesting alertness, and are covered alternately with dark and light pigments.  They have been described as belonging to warrior or secret associations and are considered to be war masks or disguises used in hunting although the precise function of Boa masks is not known.
