Second half of the 20th century - Nice condition
This mask comes from the BAMBARA ethnic group. The BAMBARA are a MANDIGO people from the West-Sahelian Africa, mainly established in Mali. They formed the BAMBARA Kingdom of Ségou.
Monobloc, this Antelope mask is made of painted wood. Since it served as an element of ornamentation at the entry of an inn in Bamako, its colours did not shade off because of the sun.
The mask, measured from the tip of the horns to the end of the nostrils is 52 cm high, 13 cm wide and 15 cm deep.
Nice condition: two cracks are due to the drying of the wood but were stabilised with wood glue.
Despite the impressive dimensions, a graceful, delicate and very “feminine” expression emanates from this mask.
Sold without stand.
It will be shipped via express parcel (colissimo), for free.
