These are the most popular masks, immersed with nobility, their presence among villagers presents a magical aspect, and brings prosperity and fecundity.

Pwo, the Tshokwe female mask (Chokwe, Tchokwé) is dressed as a woman for dancing. The Tshokwe (Chokwe, Tchokwé) man wearing this mask performs delicate, graceful movements, virtually standing still. Pwo teaches women good manners through dance. Pwo also posses es a versatile character.

  • The object was indeed older (which is good) than described, a beautiful patina and was far too cheap. However, the seller must pack more carefully to avoid damages in the future to the fragile objects

    Invio del lotto tempestivo ed efficiente. Segnalo purtroppo il distacco di un componente la maschera (pesce) dovuto probabilmente a confezionamento inadeguato.
