Igbo / Ibo
9” tall by 4 3/4” wide
A small finely carved Igbo mask with remnants of the original white kaolin, and dark pigmented raised details. These small masks are said to be the male counterpart to the larger “maiden” mask with the large headdress. The overall patina inside and out is good and dark form many years of use. Mounted on a custom metal base.
Good condition with a patina that shows a lot of signs of use and age.
