Mende helm mask (Sierra Leone)SOLD

Reference - M55
Not available
I have seen this product cheaper elsewhere.

Ancient Mende helm mask (Sierra Leone / Guinea) of the women's society "Sandé". This ancient helm mask has all the characteristics of masks of this type: a beautiful, complex and symmetrical hairstyle with two braids on top, a ringed neck (symbol of prosperity) and a face with simplified features with half-closed eyes... The wear at the base shows heavy use as well as the interior patina of portage. Some cracks visible on the pictures. A fabric forming a cushion protected the head of the mask wearer. Wood with dark brown patina. Height: 39 cm
