HISTORY BEHIND OUR MASKS
Paulski Art strives to deliver collectible and authentic African masks from regions across the African continent. We examine our pieces thoroughly and do our best to photograph each section of a mask so a buyer/collector can have a full understanding of what they’re purchasing without any surprises. That is our promise!
Dimensions: 13”H x 9”W x 8"D

Tribal Background: Igbo/Nigeria
Age: Second Half 20th Century
The Igbo people are located across the main region of eastern Nigeria, making them the second largest tribal group in West Africa after the Yoruba. Their masks are unique and typically painted white with black or other color accents. The white color is a representation of the spirit. For specific segments of the Igbo population, some mask pairs have been traditionally interpreted as representing the duality of beauty and ugliness.
Please note these are traditional/old masks. Imperfections are to be expected such as dings and minor cracks. We do our best to showcase the mask using as many photos as possible. Mask is in excellent condition
HOW TO HANG/DISPLAY MASK
Most African masks require the use of a "Metal V Display Stand". These are great for holding African masks if your intention is to display this on a table top, window bay etc. These are easily available online including here on Etsy. Please note we do not supply these.
