Description

The female body mask was part of the costume intended to represent a young pregnant woman. It was usually carved with a swollen abdomen decorated with the typical Makonde raised tattoos applied with beeswax – in this case they are carved in relief. They were always worn by a male masquerader together with a matching female face mask
