Bakongo Spirit Mask

African Kongo Bakongo Nkisi-Spirit Mask

African Kongo Bakongo Nkisi-Spirit NFT

This NFT is inspired by the actual physical piece African Mask Kongo Bakongo Nkisi is in the possession of the NFT Artist. The physical piece of art is also available for sale.

Face masks like the examples here were worn by the nganga diphomba (ritual specialist, withcdoctor or diviner). There is some incongruity between the masks’ serene expressions and the term ngobudi that refers to them, which means something frightening, a spirit or power that induces terror. White, the main colour in the masks, symbolizes the spirits of the dead.
