Product Description

Fang Peoples, Gabon

H: 26 inches, W: 10.5 inches

Material: Wood

The stylistic features typical of the Fang are all here; very broad, quarter-spherical forehead, double arched over eye sockets, heart-shaped face, projecting mouth, headdress with a crest, semi-circular scarring on the brow and cheeks, exaggerated to inspire fear.

White kaolin is the color of the spirit. Created as an instrument of terror, the mask still suggest the tripartitie power of healer,man and heavenly spirit.

    Not only did I receive a beautiful piece of art, Joe shared the history and relevance of the piece. The gallery is filled with so many treasures. I enjoyed my time learning about each piece before selecting this beauty.
