AFRICAN TRIBAL MASK. in Stockport

£150

Description:

Antique Chokwe mask, Mwana Pwo from Angola/Congo. Carved wood with iron earrings, late
19th century early 20th.
Good condition with a lovely patina although there is quite a large stable and obscure crack in the
headress which attests to it's age. Typical tribal scars to forehead.
This mask represents a beautiful young woman, Mwana Pwo, who represents the female ancestor.
She appears at the initiation and circumcision of young boys, also at the induction of a new chief and
at funerals and fertility rites.
Would prefer to meet in person but will post and accept PayPal. Postage at cost, PayPal users add
10%. Cheques OK.
