Congo Masks and Music Magnets
MIM’s special exhibition Congo Masks and Music: Masterpieces from Central Africa explores the connections between masks and musical instruments and reflects the diverse settings of masquerades. Three stunning masks and a drum from that exhibit are shown in sharp detail on these magnets that attach to any steel surface.
