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: 18”H x 10”W x 8"D

Tribal Background: Yohure People / Côte d’Ivoire
Age: Second Half 20th Century
The Yohure people inhabit the central regions of Cote d'Ivoire and have a populous number of clans due to the great number of villages. Villages are typically associated with one clan, meaning there's a wide range of masks made by each. The masks typically represent human faces adorned with metal jewelry and an animal or person sitting on the crown.
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.
