Rare Idiok Ekpo Mask in hardwood with a magnificent patina.
Idiok Ekpo mask of a hostile and lugubrious nature, reinforced by the crown with two skulls encircling the forehead. Its strong and lugubrious expression is emphasised by the protruding and messy teeth. Its wearer was entitled to kill women and uninitiated who crossed his road!
