Lot 0077
Carved wooden headdress / mask from the Chokwe peoples of Angola, West Africa. A carved wooden mask with very detailed linear designs and raised tribal motifs. The mask has an elaborate woven rope headdress attached and netting. The Chokwe would dance such masks in ceremonial dances that would mock the "Clumsy Europeans" ASlso the Pwo would represent the ideal Chokwe woman. The mask itself measures 16x 14 inches.
