CHOKWE MASK-42.5/20.5 CM. This African mask is faithful to the stylistic canons of the Chokwe, a people from Angola. The mask was sculpted with great delicacy, with a high rounded forehead, traditional scarifications on the face, eyes stretched out to the edges in the shape of a heart and fine chiselling of the teeth. The feminine ideal is well represented in this work, where natural beauty is wonderfully expressed. An original patina covers the item.

An authentic work of African art, the holes around the edge of the mask were used to attach a traditional hairstyle during ritual ceremonies. The inside of the mask leaves no doubt as to its ritual use and its proven antiquity.
