Mwana Pwo mask Chokwe - SOLD OUT

This real exceptional African mask is a traditional female mask of the Mwana Pwo type meaning "beautiful woman". It is the most famous type of mask among the Chokwe, in Angola. This one is quite remarkable for the delicacy of its features. The sculptural quality of this collector's item repatriated by a Belgian family testifies to the mastery of the sculptor who created it on order for a dancer.
Note the completely splendid shade of the patina and the presence and intact conservation of this superb mask.
