Old Punu Dance mask, African Art

Lot 0076
A very nice old carved wooden mask from the Punu 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 the spirit of a deceased young girl who the Punu believe protect the village and crops. The mask itself measures 12 x 8 inches.* The metal display stand is not included, but can be purchased for an additional $30.00

Condition

Very well weathered and worn, overall good/fair condition.
