Africa | Dance of the mukyeem (mukenga) mask, Muentshi, Congo (Democratic Republic) | © Eliot Elisofon, 1972. | Mukyeem, also called mukenga, is morphologically a variant of the moshambwooy mask. It is crowned with a bent-forward representation of an elephant trunk with two tusks. The mukyeem mask does not appear in the immediate vicinity of the king, but rather is seen among the Kete, Ngongo, Ngeende, and also with some other constituent peoples of the Kuba kingdom.
