This carved mask is 22" high, 9 1/2" across the forehead area, stained a black color on most of it, with a brown wood area on the forehead. There is meticulously inlaid mother of pearl around the brown area, in a design in the middle of the forehead, on the eyelashes, in "tears" below the eyes, and a moustache above the top lip. This is classic beauty, simple and impressive. There is a twine loop on the back, for hanging on a wall, where it would gather many complimentary comments. I do not know which country in Africa was the origin of this artifact. I have other art objects listed here, and will combine orders for shipping savings. Please email me with questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at something Wonderful.
