 IGBO
Mask 27
6.5" high x 5.5" wide x 4" deep
$600

This Igbo mask has been vetted as being authentic with significant signs of use and age.

A common characteristic of Igbo masks is that they are painted.  This one is almost black. There is damage to the ears, top and bottom. Because of the unusual profile, it is even possible that a lower part of the mask, with mouth and chin, has been lost. With no eye holes it was either worn on the top of the head as a headdress or was not used as a mask.
