For sale here is a RARE and early vintage 1950s handmade carved wood Ivory Coast Ligbi or Kulango African Mask. An incredible sculptural object entirely hand crafted by the tribes of northern Ivory Coast, and an earlier example from the mid 20th century! Measures 14.5" tall by 7.5" wide by 3" deep. Unmarked as expected. Originally given a coating of a black tint by the tribal artisan which has worn extensively as shown primarily at the hight points of the carving at front as shown. Excellent vintage condition with some signs of wear along the edges, but otherwise intact and in great shape as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
