On offer from our personal collection is this powerful face mask from the Dan/Grebo peoples of Liberia. The exaggerated, protruding lips & open mouth give the mask a somewhat aggressive presence. A large, broad nose is set between dramatically raised cheekbones. Nearly obscured by the massive high-domed brow, the narrowly slit eyes lend a covert spirit to the piece.
Despite minor imperfections in the wood, including a few abrasions & fine age cracks, this eye-catching mask is in very good overall condition. Excellent patina, encrusted in places. A highly compelling display.
