CATALOGUE NOTE:
The Pende used the Muyombo mask to represent a cadaver laid out at a wake. The Muyombo mask is truly a miniature version of the Giwoyo mask, whereas the Giwoyo (worn horizontally on the head) mask is carved entirely from wood, the headdress for Muyombo sits on the head quite differently. A soft hat provides secure mounting for the smaller headpiece, which now angles down the forehead, allowing for prolonged and physically demanding performances.
