2nd half 20th century - Good condition

Beautiful mask of the MUMUYE tribe from Nigeria in the shape of an armadillo. A very nice example of expressionist abstraction that characterizes the art of Mumuye. These masks were used in the initiation process of boys. The mask is made of wood and has a red / brown / blue and white patina.

The Mumuye from Nigeria lived in isolation until 1959 because their habitat was inaccessible through rocky hills and savannas.

    Pakket onder een afdak van een verre buurman gezet zonder briefje in de brievenbus waar het was bezorgd, op pakket stond geen adres en afzender ( meer ? ). Niet fout van verkoper maar van bezorger !

  • Mr, de Grave INTENTIONALLY faked artifact. He dramatically increased vibrancy of pale item by studio lights or photoshop, & lied about "STRIKING PIGMENTATION" in description. I DEMAND MONEY BACK. Sham

    Our photos are taken with neutral light and not processed with photo shop. We also make the description very carefully. We are therefore proud that many customers confirm this to us. Very unfortunate that you wrongly get us through the mud. Fortunately, the case has been resolved.

    Masque magnifique, soigneusement emballé, hélas cela n'a pas empêché les dégâts et le haut du masque est arrivé cassé. Dommage pour moi.
    Merci La Poste!
