End of the 19th century - in good condition - metal stand included

The Guere live in glades of the inhospitable forest. They are farmers, hunters and fishermen. They have several varieties of powerful masks (war, singing, wisdom, etc.). This mask must be a mask for protection against all dangers.

Impressive in its size and power, its studded forehead is largely overhanging, its bulbous eyes are dyed white : color of the spirits, its exaggerated and hooked nose, its large mouth open to the protruding lips is flanked by two curved tusks and prolonged a large chin garnished with raffia.

Two clean hands cover the face, symbol of protection
The top of the mask is flat to receive offerings.

Mask well structured and readable in its complexity.

Beautiful old patina.

    Maske sehr dekorativ, aber auch sehr strenger Geruch - Altersangabe falsch oder gerade erst auf Hochglanz aufgemöbelt? Schade!
