Vintage Grebo Mask
A very beautiful, unusual, and rare mask.
Grebo masks belong to the Kru cultural group and are very rare. They are characterized by an elongated nose and tubular eyes. They strongly inspired Picasso at the beginning of the 20th century, and also probably Constantin Brancusi.
Little is known about Grebo masks and dances. All that is known for certain is that they were made by privileged members of the tribe and were used during secret ceremonies and village celebrations.
The artist and exact date are unknown, but the mask likely dates to the first half of 20th century. From the Ivory Coast
