Old mask, genuine, patina of a very good quality.
This mask is particularly rare in this ethnic group.
There is a very little chance of finding a similar mask.

Facial mask of the ekpo society.
This male fraternity was also working as an intermediary between the central power of the Royal Court and the people.
It was responsible for the good of the village and had a buffer effect in case of problems.

Integrated into a larger whole, this type of mask came into play for politics, legal issues as well as religious ceremonies.

    Vous vous plaignez le 14/03...

    Est ce de ma faute?
    Est ce que cela mérite une évaluation négative?

    Il est préférable de me prévenir via la messagerie afin de faire bouger les choses..

    J'ai contacté immédiatement les services postaux, je reviens rapidement vers vous.

    Amicalement
