2nd half 20th century - good condition
Very beautiful and exclusive female PUNU mask.
With a typical fine-worked haircut and a very nice face. This mask is decorated with 10-piece kauri shells. Along the face a string of colored beads.
The hammered copper face gives this mask a very serene look.
A PUNU mask embodies the close relationship between the world of the living and the dead in African beliefs. They are usually female in nature.
The number and position of the scarifications differ by style or ethnic group. These distinctive signs, called mabinda, were made around the ages of ten to fourteen.
The mask is in a good condition.

le colis n'a pu m'être livré
j'ai du aller au dépot pour retirer le colis ( 40 kms + autotroute )Dear Mr. Michel Bernard, I send the parcel to the address you gave to Catawiki and always take care of high quality parcels and transport.
If you had given me some time I would have solved the problem for you, but you decided yourself to pick it up 40 km's from your home. We would never ask you to do that, I'm sure GLS would have tried again. If you would have had just a little more patience the parcel would have been delivered at your door.
It is sad you give me negative feedback for a mistake of the parcel service that I could have solved for you.
But I am glad you have your statue and hope you will enjoy it. I think you have a bargain.
