LIMPOMBO; THE CUSTOM OF SKULL ELONGATION
A Mangbetu Woman adorning the most fashionable hairstyle of the Congolese people. It involves elongation of the skull known as "LIPOMBO", which is practiced from birth. This gives them a distinctive look. Because of this distinctive look, it is easy to recognize Mangbetu figures in African art. The practice began dying out in the 1950s with the arrival of westernization in Dr. Congo.
