Mid last century - Good condition
Authentic male KIFWEBE mask of the SONGYE tribe - D.R. Congo
Large mask. Dimensions: Height: 48 cm - Width 23 cm. Depth 24 cm Weight 1,300 grams. Comes without stand.
The mask has a unique line pattern and has a predominantly black colour with some red and white kaolin clay.
There are clear traces of wear and tear inherent to tribal use. (have a good look at the pictures which are part of the description)
The holes around have different diameters and have clearly been made by hand. The inside also has a beautiful patina that is related to use.
In a modern interior this mask will really come to its right thanks to its almost modernist look!
Part of a small specialized SONGYE collection:
Brought back by a Belgian mining engineer, who worked in the copper and malachite mining for the Union Minière du Haut Katanga.
I have posted some pictures from his photo album that are not included.
Comes with a description and a picture of AFRICANART.
Will be sent by registered mail.

Mauvaise transaction. Chaise (mal) rapiécée en 5 endroits.
Non indiqué dans la description. Non visible sur les photos. Retour impossible.
Vendeur à éviterDear Laurent Grenet, you did not check track&trace and accuse me? You did not read the description? I was very clear about the condition: multiple repairs, traces of longtime use, general condition: reasonable. I referred to the pictures as they are an important part of the description in my tekst, you did not read that?You did not look at the pictures , all the details were well visible. Your claim is false!
And why did you wait to so long, until Catawiki could not undo the transaktion anymore? I would have taken the item back without any problem as i alway's do. All my previous feedback's were extremely positive ( 118 )
Can all my other buyers be wrong ore are you not so reliable? At first You send me a mail mail , you did not receive the item..I look at T&T and mail you the date, the place and the time you picked it up, so this was you're first lie! And I got no answer for a whole week.
( you still don't answer this question! )You're second lie is that i did not mention the condition of the item in my tekst, but i did.
How can anyone protect himself against lying buyers like you? At the end you even try to blackmail me by threatening
me to leave behind a negative feedback, and so you did. So be it.
très bien reçu, objet correspondant +++++
