Antique wooden mask or headdress, Nigeria, Yoruba tribe, 18th.-19th. century or earlier.
This mask is huge topped with a bird, that carries a snake on it's back. It's very old, guaranteed pre 1900, but we believe it's rather 18th. century or early 19th. century.
Condition: Intact, but some cracks repaired, that can be spotted from the inside. The wood is dried out due to it's high age.
Ex. Lau Sunde Collection and formerly in other Danish Collections.
