Simix Simeon - Natakuar (Henchmen's mask) 2014
Inkjet print, Edition 45
60 x 42 cm
Natakuar is the Mataso language term for the Henchman’s Mask.
If a chief orders the killing of an individual, the henchman must wear the Natakuar mask.
This is to ensure that the victim does not recognise the henchman; it is also to prevent the soul of the victim entering the killer’s body.
