Despite its appearance, this mask shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
Pumbu Mask 21
29" high - 67" (with raffia) high x 17" wide x 18" deep
This nicely carved mask has some streaking of the paint and some damage on the left back side, the top and the right ear. None diminish the visual power of the piece. The raffia is in very good condition. For display and photographing, this mask was placed on top of a standard lamp stand.
