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.
