Jewellery inspired by the leopard mask of the Luba tribe, who live in the eastern songye in Congo. The Luba people can trace their history as far back as the 7th century. Many African societies believe masks posses the power of incarnation. The performance of masked figures is widely considered to represent the visit of supernatural spirits, such as ancestors, gods or animals. Some masks are used for religious or magical rites and represent spirits of possession.
