Antique wooden mask or headdress, Nigeria, Yoruba tribe, 18th.-19th. century or earlier.

This mask is huge topped with a bird, that carries a snake on it's back.

This mask is very old, guaranteed pre 1900, but we believe it's rather 18th. century or early 19th. century.

Very subtle and very old Yoruba piece. It is hard to tell if it is ESU or not, but this has been suggested by several colleagues. Perhaps this functioned as an ESU dance staff and is complete - or it might have been the top from a longer staff, as well, modified long ago (possibly in situ). There is a curious niche on the back of the head with what appears to be a 'charge' , that is, a metal staple or similar item. Late 19th/early 20th century...
