Masks and Costumes
There were some very elaborate costumes on display in the exhibit of Masks and Music from the Congo at the Musical Instrument Museum. I found this group of costumes especially interesting. Some are made from cloth and rope while others from shells and bones.
Many of the masks are made from gourds and trimmed with dried grasses. They were carved and shaped into all kinds of expressions.
