Heaume Mask - The Makonde People (Mozambique/Tanzania)
wood, hair, pigments, wax - H: 25cm - Musée Dapper
The realism of this work is reinforced by the backward leaning of the head and the use of human hair. The numerous scars and the geometric treatment of the swollen lips makes this mask particularly stunning.
