Masque de ceremonies initiat

Here is a classic example of why the museum does need to change. This mask, and countless others like it, are just marked "Mask pour ceremonies de initiat - Sud Congo". No context, no explanation of how it was acquired, or ideas about who wore it, when and why. It's just a trophy taken from a savage people.
