Early 20th century - in good condition - without stand

NGIL mask - FANG - Gabon

Early 20th century - in good condition - without stand

Despite appearances and a unity of style, the Fang offer a rich diversity in their creations.
NGIL mask which besides big differences of dimensions, also presents a diversity of expressions.

This example, close to a mask from the Barbier Muller collection, has round eyes and mouth, broad and marked eyebrows, a long and straight nose, deep scarifications.

Why the feather headdress?
Each mask has its own history, linked in particular to the personality and importance of its owners.
With us, don't we say "put another feather in his cap".

Beautiful patina of seniority, strictly natural, front and back.
Obvious brands of portage.

Mask very alive, expressive and opening on the invisible world.

Provenance : Private belgian collection HDB

Height : 60 cm

Certification : on request

Shipping : Insured, tracked and traced
Pick up possible at our gallery in Brussels (Sablon)

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