Mid 20th century - Good condition

A very fine mask with a rounded forehead and heavy eyebrows, eyes deeply set in an angular face, the chin ending in a sharp protruding point. The eyes are painted with white and red pigment. The headdress with raffia on top is richly decorated with beads, pieces of bone and a coin. It is attached to a very finely woven piece of textile resting on the shoulders of the wearer of the mask.

This mask has a monstrous appearance, Katoyo masks represent naughty ghosts, often with a caricatured European face, a long pointed nose and thin angular lips.

There is a similar mask in "The university of Iowa, Museum of art, Stanley collection" inventory nr 1986,441

Total height 24 cm, height the mask part only 19.
Good condition.

Will be sent by registered mail.
