      Although the mask is more simplified in over-all form than comparative examples, details of the eye regions, abstract mouth and narrow chin are reminiscent of Mbagani masks from the West Kasai region;  however, the nose, ears and smooth upper portion do not seem consistent with examples of Mbagani masks.  It would certainly be worthwhile as a starting point to compare with Mbagani and other mask traditions from that region.  Lee
