Africa - PUNU mask in wood

PUNU tribal mask
Origin: GABON
20th century
in WOOD
Weight: 1.050 kg
Height: 35 cm
Width: 20 cm

History:
White masks, very characteristic, represented figures of female spirits among the deceased.
Recognisable by their hairstyles with locks, reproducing black plaits, by their narrowed eyes, arched such as the line of the eyebrows, by their red hemmed lips, by their smooth face, whitened by kaolin, and by their scarifications, composed of nine points arranged in a diamond, these masks were created in the regions of southern Gabon.
In general, it is the Punu, Lumbo, Eshira people and further to the East the Sango; but also the Myene, more to the North; the peoples of the lagoons of the maritime Ogooué; the peoples Apindji, Simba and Tsogho, who manufactured these masks as part of funeral ceremonies.

Well packed with protection for mailing.

    Le tre foto NASA non sono firmate da alcun astronauta anche se definite " signed ". Il venditore mi dice che è stato commesso un errore di traduzione......il resto è materiale di scarso valore .

    Venditore molto cortese, per un problema sul mio nominativo, il plico è tornato al mittente. Una volta corretto il nominativo del destinatario mi ha rispedito tutto una seconda volta. GRAZIE:
