Early Antique African Carved Dogon People Tribal Dyabu Bird Mask, Mali For Sale

Early Antique African Carved Dogon People Tribal Dyabu Bird Mask, Mali

GJPaw salesis pleased to bring to a RARE OFFERING of African Art & Cultural Artifacts from the estate of a well-known Chicago collector.

GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer a Carved Wood Dogon Dyabu Mask. The mask is carved of a classic rectangular form depicting a Nommo ancestor with the figure of a bird perched on the top of the mask. The Dogon are a very interesting African tribe that has garnered much interest as of recent with their worship of the Sirius star grouping. They believe that their ancestral spirits, Nommo, came from this corner of the Universe, and they have produced bronze astrological models showing stars that were not visible before the invention of advanced scientific equipment in the mid-20th century. The Dogon also talk about how the Nommo, these amphibian-like deities, arrived from the sky in fantastical sky ships.

The mask measures 36.75 inches including the base (93.34 cm). Overall, the piece is of spectacular quality and integrity. It is very rare to see masks of this age and caliber, as the Dogon tribe is very remotely located in Africa. It is very likely, given the favorable dry condition where the Dogon live, that this mask is early to mid 20th century. We are very happy, thanks to the consignment of a local collector, to be offering this rare, early example on with and a low starting offer. This mask, because of it being a superior example, was exhibited along with a Prominent collection of African Art at a gallery in Chicago in 2012. Because this example is so unique, we could not find identical examples in the sale records; however, examples of Dogon masks regularly sell at major sales in Paris and New York. This piece also comes complete with a custom made museum mount.

GJPaw sales has been in theArt business for over 25 years and is now expanding its operation to . Our goal is to bring the same experience and excitement of collecting that we have been delivering to our walk-in customers for decades to collectors across the Globe. Every object we sell online has been carefully hand-selected with special attention to detail, quality, and significance.
