Abelam


This is an engaging Abelam yam mask - Babini.

 

Carved in light  wood and with original pigments the work is quite endearing by it's diminutive size but rather larger spiritual volume.  Expressive and well defined the face sits within a teardrop shaped 'Notu' headress.

 

Ca. earlier/mid 20th Cent.

14"
