Weight: 1680 grams.
Ex collection M. Muhandule - London - UK.
Currently in a Dutch collection .

The mask is completely decorated with synchronous patterns, which are filled with kaolin.

The 3 horns are covered with skin.
The back is covered with a thin cloth and has traces of intensive use.
A very rare mask.
