Masquerade at Ngashi, Pende People, Congo - The Nokia (Snake-men) 1956 - Photo by Léon de Sousberghe

In the 1910-30s, a series of older men among the Central Pende of the Democratic Republic of Congo invented and sold concessions to a revolutionary category of masks: “Mbuya jia Mafuzo”. In serious decline by the 1950s, the “Mafuzo” masks have all but disappeared since independence in 1960. The largest subset of the “Mbuya jia Mafuzo” depict dangerous animals of the bush: the Cape buffalo, the leopard, the lion, the crocodile, the snake, the elephant. De Sousberghe photographed a performance of Nyoga at Ngashi (Central Pende) in 1956. Dancers usually appear as a pair, performing upright a synchronized, wriggling dance. The dancers do not wear headpieces or face masks. They rely on face-paint and distance to prevent identification.
