Description

Stylistic 3 headed Idoma crest mask from Nigeria.
Headdresses with a conical base supporting a round human head and helmet masks belong to the Oglinye society which was originally a warrior society. Nowadays, however, it retains only the idea that its members are strong and courageous. Janus or multi-headed headdresses also exist and are used during entertainment festivities and funerals. (Jean-Baptiste Bacquart, The tribal arts of Africa, P. 88)
The mask is in good condtion with a beautiful patina of age.
