Condition: Used. The mask shows signs of its age and travels. The paint and kaolin have a few chips and wear in a few places, mainly the forehead (see closeup photos). However, the mask is in overall good condition for its age, with no cracks or major chips in the wood. The original beadwork and raffia cloth/cowrie shell headdress are intact. No broken shells or tears in the cloth. The photos show the actual mask and display stand the winning bidder will receive. No other items are included.

Specifications: This is an older Ngady 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 1990s, however, the mask itself is much older. The only history we have on this artifact is that it was collected in Leopoldville, Congo during WWII (the 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-1990s, then it was acquired through an estate sale and held in a private collection in the U.S. until the present. We are unable to determine its exact age, but it is definitely 1940's - could likely be older - and it 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).
