Interesting facts: When one asks Songye men what a Kifwebe mask represents, the answers will vary greatly, but the gist will be that the mask basically depicts supernatural beings, such as ancestor spirits (katotoshi) visiting their descendants: a beautiful fertile woman on one hand and a strong virile man on the other hand. Many, however, will describe a spirit/creature incorporating a variety of animals, or a composite being consisting of mixed human and animal elements.  This appears the case in this bird-like piece.
