Dan

Liberia/Ivory Coast

Height 13 inches

DESCRIPTION

One of the most impressive Grebo masks I have seen, the carving is exquisite with human like features including robust full lips, metal teeth, a long, upside down T shaped, 'Picasso stye' nose and covefee bean eyes with almost an eskimo goggle likeness. A huge rounded forehead with incised design. The numbers on the back show a very early French collection number (14Z) noted in white.
