Igbo Mask (N° 25710)

Ex-collection of French African tribal art. These conical-shaped masks come from the Nsukka region, but could be of Igala origin. The neighboring Igala indeed have comparable royal masks. This example with lateral fins offers striated patterns linked to the facial scarifications of the igala groups. The mask is topped with a bouquet of feathers. Oiled patina. Desiccation cracks, chips, indigenous restoration.
The Igbo live in the forest in the southeast of Nigeria. The village constitutes the largest social unit, the smallest being the extended family. Each village has a high degree of autonomy and is placed under the authority of the oldest lineage leader. The Igbo religion includes on the one hand the god Chuku, supreme creator, considered omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, and on the other hand the spirit of the earth Ala.
