Exceptional old mask - VILI - Gabon

Early 20th century - in very good condition - without stand

The Vili live in southern Gabon. Close to Punu and Lumbu, the style of their pieces gets close.

Amazing harmony and presence of the face in a beautiful oval.
Remarkable shiny and satiny patina resulting from long blood libations for a double purpose: to reinforce the power of the mask and to protect it from all attacks of insects (face and back).

Exceptional piece by its rarity, its age, its state of conservation. the balance of its forms and beauty,


Provenance : belgian private collection hdb (more information on request).

Height : 30 cm

Certification : on request


Shipping : Insured, tracked and traced

    Meiner Meinung nach zu teuer. Riecht streng und ist jünger als angegeben oder unlängst überarbeitet. Aber ein Foto macht oft mehr her!
