稀有Zakpei護照面具 - 布料, 木, 棕櫚葉 - 丹瑪侯 - 利比里亞

Authentic and rare Beak Mask in a rare Zakpeî version

Without the headdress, the mask measures the impressive length of 19 cm.

A mask with a strong expression, also thanks to the glance, highlighted by red felt and white paint.
This mask is complete, with its magnificent hairdo.

“Passport masks” are carved to welcome ancestral spirits, like for the large masks.

Their main function consists in the protection of its wearer, especially against witchcraft.

But they can also serve for divination or be an altar piece and receive the different offerings that can be given.

Finally, they indicate the wearer’s rank, as well as his filiation, in regions were he is a stranger.
This is why it is named passport mask.

Former private collection.

Shipment via express parcel (Colissimo) with track & trace.
