Magnificent KUMU or KOMO Mask. D.R.C.

The masks of the Kumu (Komo) have become known to collectors only in the last quarter century, mostly as a result of an influx of foreign aid workers into the region.  The Kumu live on the western edges of the Ituri Rainforest, one of the few remaining virgin ecosystems left on earth. Ituri lies just to the west of the Great Lakes Region and the countries of Uganda and Tanzania.
