Late 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

Total nr of items: 1
Object: Dance mask (More lots)
Ethnic group/ culture: Bamileke
Region/ country: Cameroon
Material: wood, glass beads, textile
Period: Late 20th century
Condition: Good condition, used with some signs of wear
Sold with stand: No
Dimensions: 34×24×9 cm

Very beautiful and expressive Bamileke mask, carved from one piece of wood and made the traditional way with fine beads/glass pearls.
This type of decoration is very specific to the Bamileke and Bamoun, and creates a special miraculous effect!
The shape of the head is also specific to the Bamileke, you can find it in very old pieces.

These masks are worn diagonally on the forehead so-called crest masks, in combination with very colourful outfits on special occasions.

The Bamilekes (French: Bamiléké) are one of the most important ethnic groups in Cameroon.
Together with the Tikar and the Bamoun they form the "Hemi-Bantoe" group.
They live in the west of Cameroon, in the so called Grassland - Cameroon.

Besides this man type mask there are also animal (zoomorphic) masks, made in the same traditional way with glass pearls also with a fantastic look.

The items will be well packaged and shipped with care.

    Il bellissimo NOMOLI MENDE, della Sierra Leone, è finalmente arrivato. Purtroppo l'imballaggio non era perfetto e la pietra si è scheggiata in un gomito. Scatola piccola. Gigi Oderzo Treviso ITALIA

    Dear Customer,
    What a pity to hear, hope that the damage is not too bad! I always take care of the packaging and will improve it even more! I hope that despite this accident/damage you still will enjoy the Nomoli.

    Sincerely,
    Frank Wiersma
