Beautiful serene portrait mask of the Baule people living in the Ivory Coast.
The mask has the traditional scarifications on the face: on the forehead and next to the eyes and mouth. The hairstyle has been very skilfully made with 4 bunches.
The patina is even and reddish brown. One small tear at the back.
From a French collection.
Now in my personal Dutch collection.
