Vintage South African Zulu Tribal Mask
Vintage Hand Crafted South Africa Zulu Ceremonial Tribal Mask.
The ancestors of the Zulu migrated from west Africa into southeastern Africa during the Bantu migrations from 2000 BC until the 15th century. The Zulu tribe expanded into a powerful kingdom, subdued surrounding groups, and settled in the region known as KwaZulu-Natal in present day South Africa. After enduring colonialism and overcoming apartheid, they have emerged as the dominant ethnic group in South Africa. Zulu means 'sky' which is the name of the founder of the Zulu nation. They have cultural ties with the Swazi, Xhosa, and Ndebele tribes of Southern Africa due to their Bantu origins.
