This Fang [four face] mask is from Gabon in West Africa....Normally worn over the head...There role [helmet masks] was related to sorcery ...Gabon has a history going back to 7000BC and was a area where Pygmies were thought to have lived......Fang people make up the largest tribal group.......The mask is from my collection and very difficult to date...Many experts disagree with each other however it is not new and we would say mid 20th Century.......African tribal art has been collected and admired for centuries.......Picasso and many others were inspired by its power and majesty........I have collected african art for many years ......approx height 12-1/2" X 8-1/2 wide..... Four nearly identical faces !!!
