Though the Pende are divided into two geographically distinct groups, with considerable artistic differences, they still consider themselves one people and are both well-known for their initiation and circumcision masks. Their proximity to Angola and the cultures of the old Lunda Empire, like the Chokwe, make their masks and prestige objects among the most diverse and beautiful in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
