Condition: good, but it has a damage on the front, at the bottom (see pictures).
The Eket are a peoples of Nigeria, located in the state Cross River. It is one of the most important subgroups of the Ibibio. The masks and other wearable art of the Eket society are the greatest works of art in the Ibibio society. Drumming and music are also important elements in Eket ceremonies.
This mask comes from the inheritance of a collector who was very active during the 1970s. We acquired it at an auction in the Netherlands.
The photos are a part of the description.
Will be carefully packaged and shipped worldwide with Track & Trace.
