Hausa Tribesman African Mask

African masks, which can be traced back to Paleolithic times, have great cultural importance and are highly sought after by both museums and art collectors. Bearing religious, ceremonial, and cultural significance, African masks typically depict animal and human characteristics and are made from a variety of woods and materials. African masks often represent a spirit and are worn by a chosen dancer during various celebrations. Connecting the living with the dead, it is believed that the spirits of the ancestors possess the wearer of the African masks. Even today, African masks play a very important and deep role in telling the history of many African people and their ancestors.

The Hausa Tribesman African Mask represents a Hausa warrior from northern Nigeria. The history of the Hausa people is tied to Islam and the Fulani, who wrestled political power from the Hausa through a series of holy wars.

The Hausa Tribesman African Mask is delicately hand carved from African Sese wood. Crafted to represent a warriors shield, this work of African art is is embellished with brass inlays, bold tones and a deep mansion polish.
