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.

Dimensions approx.
Height: 35 cm
Width: 22 cm
Depth: 25 cm.
The item is sold without stand.
