Ngoin african mask- Bamun - SOLD OUT

The Bamoun / Bamileke artistic corpus in traditional African art

This type of African mask named Ngoin appeared on the occasion of funeral ceremonies of illustrious characters.

While some are sometimes covered with multicolored pearls, here the veneer is made of hammered brass. Note the presence of cowries on the headdress and beard.

The style is classic, the forms exaggerated as evidenced by the imposing nostrils and the globular eyes.
