Description

It is believed the earliest masks were used in Africa before the Paleolithic era in rituals and ceremonies. They were used to represent spirits of animals or ancestors, mythological heroes, moral values, or a form of honoring a person in a symbolic way.

Masks are made from wood, pottery, textiles, copper, and bronze. Details could be made from animal teeth, hair, bones, and horns, as well as feathers, seashells, and even straw and egg shells.

Important shipping note: contact us to determine shipping cost or shipping cost may be determined after order is placed. As all our items are crafted & sold directly from the crafters in their villages, bigger items are difficult to get to the DHL office to weigh in order to determine postage (and postage changes frequently). The cost of these items will be determined once contact is made with us requesting this, or once an order has been placed for any of these items. We will then contact you with the cost of shipping. If you have already purchased any of these items and wish for it to be shipped as planned, an invoice for the cost of shipping will be sent to you. Once this is completed, your order will arrive within 5 business days via DHL. If you decide to decline invoice payment and cancel your order, a full refund will be provided.
