SKU: A73(2) Category:

The Galoa people of Gabon are a small group of primarily agricultural and fishing people, although in the past they hunted elephants, antelopes, boars, and small monkeys. This mask was made for ceremonies of the great rite of passage of Galoa, like births, initiation rituals, weddings or funerals. They were believed to provide ‘powers and evil spirits’ to the bearer. Note that there are slight cracks on the right side of the mask, hence adding more character to it. Would make a handsome addition to your collection.

Fumigation/Treatment of the wood certificate will be included as your copy for your receiving purposes.
