Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



An object d’art wooden bird mask, with a quality suitable for a museum exhibit.  Superbly carved by Chokwe artisans to honor divine ancestors.


Acquired from a Pretoria South African Gallery whose owner has direct access to chiefs in the Congo.  Based on my purchases and subsequent research, I do not doubt his access.


Includes a stand for display.


For the Serious Collector, only.
