Nyamwezi Mask

Tanzania

Mask. Nyamwezi Culture, Tanzania

This mask, with a pair of square-shaped eyes and prominent hooded neck, displays a powerful, primal expression – an expression typically found among masks from this region of Tanzania. The mask bares a set of teeth made from inserted metal, and emblazoned on each cheek are two cross-shaped facial markings.

Red and black pigments decorate the surface of the mask, which, over time, have become faded and worn.

Ex Private Collection, France

Estimated Period: Pre-1950's
