Second half 20th century - In good condition

Authentic Chihongo mask of the Chokwe tribe from Angola. The male mask is made of wood with a skull on the forehead and protruding feathers. These kind of masks symbolize wealth and power. Judicial powers were ascribed to this mask in the Chokwe community. The powerful mask is definitely still in a good condition considering the age.

Dimensions: 45 high x 15 Wide x 13 cm Deep
Weight: 700 grams.

Have a look at the pictures for a good impression of the mask. The lot can be viewed and picked up at the Asian African Art gallery in Vessem (The Netherlands). In case of shipment, it will be carefully packed and sent by registered mail.

    Mais,
    Frais d'expédition est très chère. Frais demandés par le vendeur ne corresponds pas aux frais payés par l'acheteur. On n'achète pas les frais. La différence est énorme.
