£168.00
This is a sculptural animal mask from Nigeria, West Africa.  Features sculptural, three dimensional face, with open mouth, serrated teeth and a protruding tongue..  The patina is obviously old, has character and the mouth has remnants of pigment.  In good condition, a small hole at the head.  The underside of the mask has been eroded.  Height of mask approx 45 cm.  This mask has probably been tribally used, but we are not one hundred percent certain. Stand not included.
