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.

Condition: Intact, but some cracks repaired, that can be spotted from the inside. The wood is dried out due to it's high age.

Ex. Sunde Collection and formerly in other Danish Collections.
