Ancient tribal mask of the MBUNDA/SUBIYA tribe, Zambia, 1920-30
Ancient, intensively used earthly mask of the Mbunda or Subiya tribe from Zambia. The mask depicts an old man and is as an intensively used mask should actually be .... no damage but obvious traces of use and age. See also the back ... An object about which there can be no discussion. Remnants of monkey fur and goatskin attached later on top are visible. A beauty for the lover of old used tribal pieces with a soul! See the pictures.
