Authentic Zoömorf mask of the DOGON tribe. Double Monkey mask.
This tribe lives on the edge of the Bandiagara Cliffs in Mali.
The age is estimated between 1950-1960, the piece has weathered beautifully and has traces of wear and tear.
Some termite damage, like with many of African pieces of this age. But it is not really disturbing, it just gives the piece more character. Look at the pictures which are part of the description. Dimensions: height: 35 x width: 16 cm , depth: 11 cm. Weight: 935 grams.
It comes from a recently released collection of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. I also have a photo album in which there are many pictures about their work in Congo. See the last pictures.
I have even been able to take the enamelled wall shield, that was hanging on a wall of their mission, with me (see picture).
I can eventually e-mail the pictures, they are not included.
Comes without stand.
Will be sent by registered mail.

Both lots are beautiful and correspond exactly to the description and pictures provided by the seller. Fast delivery and very good packaging. Very professional service altogether.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.The item was correct and the packaging good enough. The documentation was not in English. The item's true value was not stated, instead the number was 500€ (which I assume is the insurance maximum).Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Hi, the true value is much higher than the Price you payed for it, the indicated Price on the shipping document has no effect on you, but the shipping compagny is perhaps more carefull. The Certificate is alway's in Dutch, as i am a Dutch seller, just as the discription on Catawiki is also in Dutch, nowhere i write that the ( free ) Certificate would be in English
You are Pleased with the item, and the Packaging was good, i Delivered as quickly as possible so i can not understand why you don't be a sport and give a positive feedback. Best Africanart.
