Early to mid-XXth -collected in 1960- wood-red paint-vegetal fibers-good condition

A small Red Tschokwe Ilunga Mask-
H 22 cm - D.R. Congo -border Angola. The coiffe made with vegetable Fibers .
This mask was collected in Africa in 1960. Complete coiffe on the back.

Did you know that the world's most difficult word to translate has been identified as "ilunga" from the Tshiluba language spoken in south-eastern DR Congo.
Ilunga means "a person who is ready to forgive any abuse for the first time, to tolerate it a second time, but never a third time".
It seems straightforward enough, but the 1,000 language experts identified it as the hardest word to translate.

PROVENANCE : From a retired Belgian collector who had more than 70 Art objects mentioned in the Guy van Rijn Yale database of African art.

This is a unique occasion for you to get a genuine object in your house at very low starting prices.

The name of the collector will be given to all buyers in the accompanying documentation included in every package.

  • Reclamar a Catawiki a la menor incidencia. La figura llegó mal embalada y rota!. He tenido que devolverla al vendedor y este "señor" no ha querido reembolsarme los gastos. Mal profesional.
