This masterful example is carved from a light colored wood with a reddened, darkened, slightly encrusted, shiny patina. The filed, jagged teeth have been daubed with an organic, white pigment. It is a type believed to represent an ancestor and possibly used for the regulation of social life among males (Mugonge), though little is documented on mask types from the Chokwe-related, Ovimbundu people of Angola. Early 20th century, the mask measures 8.50"H x 6"W...

The motif of opposing birds (possibly Calao birds, which are sacred animals in the mythology of many West African peoples) on weaver's heddle pulleys is rare. This old example is visually appealing due to the mirror-image effect of the two birds with beaks touching, also forming a graceful negative space between them. With a varied, black to reddish brown, encrusted and shiny, aged patina. The pulley itself is 7"H, and is mounted on a steel base. Early 20th century...

In very good condition, with some loss and degradation of the textile ball attachments along the sides...

The doll is 14"H x 5.50"W, in very fine condition with a honey-brown, shiny, aged patina with traces of kaolin pigment...

As is typical for this type of mask, brass and copper sheet has been cut, punched and nailed to the surface to add not only dramatic effect but also, as is believed in many African cultures, to reinforce the ritual effectiveness of the object. These distinctively elongated and severe face masks are donned for ceremonies related to fishing and farming, as well as initiations. Made of heavy, hard wood, this example shows good use and age...
