A very nice old carved wooden mask from the Kwese peoples of Gabon, West Africa. The Wood is very light and very dry, suggesting age and wear over the years. The mask has a light surface pigment of kaolin clay remaining, giving the mask a haunting look, and indeed such masks represented ancestor spirits who protect the village and crops. The mask itself measures 13.5 x 9 inches. *The Display stand is Not Included, but can be purchased separately for an additional $30.00
