Mid 20th century - In reasonably good condition
Antique Yaure mask from the BAULE tribe, Africa, Ivory Coast, around 1945.
The dimensions are: height 24 cm Width 17 cm
This mask has a nice weathered patina and some very light insect damage. The edge with holes has shows some wear and tear.
The characteristic face scarification is very visible. Note the great hairdo!
Brought back from D.R.Congo by an ex colonial who worked as a mining engineer for a long time and worked in the Malachite mine in the copper basin of Upper Katanga for the “Union Miniére du Haut Katanga”. I also have his photo album (in which you can see him at home with his family and at work in the mines). This is not included but I can mail you some photos, if desired. With CERTIFICATE with photo, age and description by AFRICANART.
Comes without stand.
Will be sent by registered mail with PostNL.

Ik hoop dat u toch tevreden bent voor de rest,
Met vriendelijke groet, Africanart
