LULUA masks like this one are extremely rare and were used during circumcision and funeral ceremonies. They display enlarged eyes and complex scarification patterns on their cheeks. The many holes around the eyes of this wooden mask gives a mysterious appearance. Contains traces of wear and tear on the left cheek.
Unique mask for the collector of ancient ethnographic art. A real beauty! Good quality with traces of wear and tear due to tribal use.
Provenance: Ex private collection from Belgium.
