The Punu live in the south of Gabon and are known for their white "Okuyi" masks. These masks represent a beautiful undead girl who visits the living to help in times of need. The mask is pigmented black and white, with a finely carved relief.
The mask is in very nice antique condition.

Ein Designmöbel aus der Zeit ist etwas anderes als eine Reproduktion.
