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.

    Object was very disappointing. When it was shipped back it was supposedly damaged, absolutely mysteriously to me - and so there was no refund.

    Item was send back without any notice. And by our surprise the item was damaged when we opened the box. We payed for shipping cost + never received money for the item from Catawiki + have a broken item + negative feedback. And you ask for a refund? This is the world upside down. Really disappointing.

    The asking price for post 18,00 € for 1 piece of 33 grams is exaggerated! Do you sell currencies or postage? The currency conforms to the description.

    Dear Pierre,

    All shipping costs are clearly mentioned during auction time. All items are fully insured and with signature on arrival + Track & Trace number. I just use the PostNL tariff. You can check the cost for France here:

    https://www.postnl.nl/tarieven/tarieven-pakketten/Pakket/FR/0-2kg

    You can see that we use normal shipping cost.

    Kind regards,

    Huub
