The Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is home to a cluster of hunter and gatherer peoples including the Bembe and Lega. The art traditions of this region are diverse and styles vary greatly from one village to the next. Ethnic attributions of authorship are therefore sometimes difficult and have to remain vague.
