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.
