This is an elegant little Punu mask from Gabon.
Although this mask is always danced by young men, it always represents the idealised feminine beauty
This mask presents many interesting details: it has a typically oval face, whitened with a patina of kaolin, it aged well, with semi-closed eyes in coffee beans, the nose is in the shape of a reversed T, fleshy lips for the open mouth of an oval form with realistic teeth.
The scarification on the forehead in the shape of a diamond symbolises the nine subgroups that compose the Punu people.
This diamond motif is repeated in front of each ear and together with the lips, these are coloured with the same red pigment.
An elevated hairdo with recessed engraving.
The mask has the same appearance on a stand or on a wall.
Express and secure shipment.
