Last third 20th century – very good state

Carved and polychromed wooden mask.
Dimensions 48 x 36 cm

Kwele masks come from the rainforests of Gabon on the West coast of Africa.

These pieces with heart-shaped horns represent the antelope whose meat was eaten at the end of the ritual of the 'beete'.

The Kwele faces are usually painted in white kaolin dirt, a pigment associated by the Kwele with light and clarity, the two essential factors in the fight against evil.
