African Masks - Lulua
The Lulua were famous for decorating their bodies with intricate scarification marks and tattoos. They also applied these designs to their sculptures and masks.
The masks, which are rare, are usually incised with geometric pattern and colored with a reddish pigment. The pointed forms on the top of the head represent the Lulua hairstyle.
The Lulua, previously called the Bena Lulua, are related to the Lwalwa and like them, the men hunt and the women farm.
