  • Vintage Kuba/Bakuba Tribal Mask
  • Custom Wrought Iron Display Stand


This is an older royal "Ngady a'Mwaash" female mask from the Kuba tribe (formerly Bakuba tribe) on a custom-made metal stand. The stand was made specifically for this mask in the 1990's, however the mask itself is older.
Artifact history: the mask was collected in Leopoldville, Congo during WWII (DRC, Democratic Republic of the Congo, formerly Zaire). It was brought back to the UK after the war and was part of a private collection until the mid 1990's, then it was acquired through an estate sale and held in a private collection in the U.S. until present day. We can not determine the exact age, but it is definitely 1940's - although it could likely be older. It is of museum quality and will make a great addition to any serious African art collection. The mask on the display stand is approximately 18-inches tall and the stand is 6.5-inches in diameter. The face (wood part) of the mask is 6-inches wide x 9-inches tall (12.5-inches tall including the headdress).
