Old Galoa African mask, African Art

Lot 0075 Details

Description
This is a very nice vintage wooden mask from the Galoa peoples of Gabon, West Africa. The Galoa live in western Gabon in the territory of the city of Lambarene and create ‘okukwe masks’ to perform during large Galoa rite of passage ceremonies, such as births, initiation rituals, weddings or funerals. They disperse ‘evil powers and spirits’. The central, vertical arrangement of red, white and brown colors which form clearly divided triangles on the kaolin white mask face are typical of this style of ‘okukwe mask’. Mask itself measures 9.5 x 6.5 inches. A loose band of beads is attached around the forehead. I Will include a custom black metal display stand.
