African Mende Bundu Dance Mask
This vintage Bundu Dance Helmet Mask is supposed to display the traits of the Mende people's ideals of female beauty. This mask measures approximately 12" tall (not including the dark raffia & hair collar in measurement) and has signs of patination from use and age. The domelike helmet is thin walled and beautifully carved. Some light signs of wear at the rear under the hair.
