DescriptionCHOKWE, Democratic Republic of Congo, Angola
Wood, pigment, fiber
This unusual and old Chokwe mask is probably of the Katoyo type, as such masks represent non-Chokwe individuals, occasionally foreigners. The deviation of the mask from the more common Chokwe masks is due largely to the fact that fewer of these masks were collected historically because of their lack of classical Chokwe 'canonical' style attributes. These masks would have been utilized side by side with the better-known Chokwe masks in initiations and funerary contexts.
Height: 14 inches
Estimate: $1,200 - $1,800.
