African Plank Mask in the Nafana 'Edu' Style, Great Contemporary Abstract Look

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Standing 80 inches tall this is a example of one of the largest of all African mask types. This Nafana style mask features a large decorated plank with natural earth colors and surmounted with a large circle at the top symbolizing buffalo horns. This mask is likely a reproduction of an original Edu mask made for decorative purposes, but its abstract artistic qualities are stunning.
