Early 20th century - Good condition - In its original condition

Rare and original double axe/récade of a Dogon ceremony. Those axes are reserved to animist priests and are mainly used for sacrifices of poultry, required by the healing soothsayers. Both of the curved blades, scarified with chevron patterned lines, are surmounted by two opposed heads. The handle ends by two spirals which symbolise a water swirl.
Dimensions:
Height: 41 cm.
Maximum width: 11 cm.
Weight: 388 grams.

    Hello, I went out a few weeks and as I have no smartphone, me acquaints this day of your negative evaluation. I did not know that display stands were de facto included in the sale. Especially as this one is just used to maintain the mask the time(weather) of the photo. This heavy mask was hung on(collided) on a wall at my home(with me). This display stand is not thus a base adapted to this type(chap) of mask. But if you insist I can send him(it) to you all the same. If you indicate me your e-mail address I could send you a photo. In every case I am really sorry because I should have mentioned that the base was not to sell. Looking forward to your reply. Cordially.
