A very rare Tetela mask from Democratic Republic of Congo. Yesterday, I posted a statue from the same tribe. Both are not similar to anything else that I’ve seen. The provenance is terrific: Jean Paul Agogue of Paris. This is worth a lot of money…but if you want to dip your toes into African tribal art, you’re welcome to visit my warehouse in Eagle Creek, Oregon and/or www.discoverafricanart.com for very reasonable prices. We also are adding outposts around the Portland area.
I purchased it at the San Francisco Tribal Art Show a couple of years ago.
