Makonde Mask

Tanzania

Face Mask. Makonde Culture, Tanzania/Mozambique 

This Makonde face mask depicts a fine-featured female with a lip adornment and exaggerated ears. Natural pigments have been used to colour the surface of the mask.

Two holes at the rear of the mask, where a strap would have been attached, show good signs of wear. The front of the mask also exhibits a worn surface, which is particularly prevalent around the top of the nose and the lip area.

Estimated Period: Mid-20th Century (1940’s – 1950’s)
