Wood Carvings Africa Style Masks Mixed Lot 3 Pieces Contemporary
Mixed lot of African style mask
carvings, contemporary craft artwork.
We are very pleased to be able to
present this mixed lot of hand carved masks.
This three mask lot includes two large
carvings, and one small carving in a shadow box. The carving
in the shadow box is an elongated face, approximately 13 1/2
inches tall, by 3 inches wide. The box it is mounted in, is
20 1/8, by 8, by 2 inches. The box has a woven grass patterned
matte, and is covered by glass. The box is painted black with
a distressed top trim.
The two larger masks are carved from
single planks of wood. Each is a face with tall hats, or headdresses
and long beards. The beard style reminds me of the stone carvings
of the ancient Babylonians. One mask is 30 inches tall, by 6
3/4 inches wide, and 2 inches thick. This mask has shallow depression
carved out of the back. The other mask is 26 3/8 inches tall,
by 6 1/4 wide, and 2 inches thick. This mask has a flat back.
Condition- The condition of these
masks is good. There are no major scratches or dings in the
surface of the wood. The two long masks have loop wire hangers.
The shadow box has no mount, and the back is loose. The style
looks African but we cannot be sure of their origins, unfortunately
there are no makers marks or signatures on any of the pieces.
These hand carved masks would be great
decorative pieces in a room with an African theme.
