DescriptionYoruba (Nigeria, Western Africa) Epa Mask
Height: 62 inches
A fine example of this large, dramatic Yoruba mask tradition. Worn by a dancer over the head, it is surmounted by a standing figure of a priestess carrying a baby on her back. Maternity was a popular subject for Yoruba carvers, and such figures are always highly esteemed among collectors. Male figures are often depicted on horseback as a symbol of their strength and power. A superior specimen in very good condition, showing only expected indications of age and use.
