A lovely initiation ceremony mask from the Ibo tribe of Nigeria, 8-3/4" high. The skillfully executed face appears regal and serene and is surrounded by a headdress. The paint is strong and still vivid, despite showing evidence of extensive wear. A fine old mask, with great patina and just minor surface loss.

Collected in the 1950's or '60's.
