18+ Inches Old Wood & Skin Ekoi Janus Helmet Mask Nigeria African African Tribal:
What we have here is a LARGE Old Wood & Skin EKOI JANUS HELMET Mask from Nigeria Africa... 18 1/4 inches tall by 12 inches wide! A big bold piece with strong visual impact emanating from this two faced mask... the red face is covered with tightly stretched and pigmented ANIMAL SKIN. Some cracks and chips to wood and some splitting of skin covering as seen in the photos. Unusual and bold. Over all well aged condition. With all African art expect chips dings scratches and cracks that are common to tribal art and add to the aged beauty and charm of the piece... see photos for condition. I do not know the exact date of creation but it shows age and patina.

The original price tag from the African Art gallery that this helmet mask came from was for $3800. All of the other items from this out of business gallery that had price tags were consistently priced at typical gallery market rates, so it is safe to assume that this Janus mask has some age and value to it. My reserve price on this mask is very low... some lucky person is going to get a great deal on this unique African item.
