About

Authentic old piece, retaining some of the original painted surface. Art from the Cameroon tribes played a great role in influencing and inspiring the German Expressionists. Though rarely done. the quality and authenticity of the tribal art, should match the quality and authenticity of the modern art it is displayed with.
