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.

    dommage que la "poudre de bois rouge" fasse 1 poussière aussi "polluante" : 1 h de nettoyage n'a pas suffi !....

    Hallo, tribale items uit Afrika dienen niet schoon gemaakt te worden, dat gaat ten koste van de authenticiteit , zo worden ze tribaal vervaardigd en zo horen ze ook te zijn!vergelijk het met oude munten die mag je ook niet poetsen, ze worden dan meteen minder waard! Ik hoop dat u toch tevreden bent voor de rest,
    Met vriendelijke groet, Africanart
