Luba Kifwebe mask

Luba

H: 31 cm D: ( including protruding mouth ) 16cm W: 20 cm

DESCRIPTION

This is an exceptional Luba Kifwebe mask and to my recognition unique in its form. This mask is new to the market and was in a private Belgian ex colonial collection and afterwards inherited by descendants. The kaolin which, most probably, covered the entire surface may have been removed in a later stadium. Comes on a custom made base.
