In the Songye language, a mask is a kifwebe: this term has been given to masks representing spirits and characterized by striations.  The kifwebe society used them to ward off disaster or any threat. 

This passport size body mask was made for decoration. We purchased it on our trip to the border of Uganda and Kongo Democratic Republic.
