AFRICAN HEADS

Our large Masks and Heads category has been divided into Facemasks, Helmet Masks, Crest Masks, Headdresses and Heads.

Most of these objects were originally described as if authentic.  Most were not. Those objects that have been vetted as authentic by outside experts (Christophe Rolley, Edith Mbella, Daniel Mato, Rand Ningali, Phil Warish and Ethan Rider) are labelled as such. Objects made for the market are labelled accordingly, and objects in our archives or on pages no longer on our website should be assumed to be inauthentic if not otherwise labelled.
