A marvelous old bronze mask from the Bamileke peoples of Cameroon. The various ethnic groups throughout the Cameroon region, including the Bamileke, Bamum, & Tikar, are renowned for their skilled & highly imaginative metalwork, & are known to produce some of the most sought after of all African sculptures. This mask would have been made using the "loss wax" technique The center loop at the top of the mask suggests this piece may possibly have been used as a hip mask, worn on the ornate belt of a king or other tribal official.
