Welcome to the sale of this amazing carved wooden head. This large African head was made by the Makonde tribe of Tanzania.
It is slightly oversized and would have been worn as part of a ceremony. It is carved from a single pice of wood and the carving is superb. The face is extremely expressive and the detailing well executed. It must have taken the artist many hours of labour and represents African folk art at its very best.All in all a very interesting piece of interior design. In good condition commensurate with its age and use. Please have a good look at the photographs as they form part of the description and contact me if you have any further questions. The head measures (in cm) 27 tall, 23 wide and 31 deep.
