Fantastic Guere African mask with carved "Curtain" Eyes

Lot 0146
Unusual and fascinating carved wooden mask from the Guere / Wobe ethnic group, Liberia, West Africa. The mask features a most unusual carved visor or "curtain" over the eyes, with delicately carved slits and accented with multiple colored kaolin clay. Despite the weathered and worn appearance of this sculpture, it was likely made for the art trade. The mask is carved from a heavy dense wood, and measures 13 x 7 inches with a shipping weight of 8 lbs. This mask does not include a display stand, we can supply you one after the auction for an additional $34.00
