African Masks & Carvings
One could easily argue this to be the most iconic form of art in Africa. African Masks are more than just art. They embody the true nature of tribal expressionism, religion, rituals and ceremonies. With hundreds of tribes and cultures across the African continent, Masks do a great job in detailing the history behind each tribe and its cultural significance through time. Depending on geographical location, African masks are traditionally made from hard wood, bronze, copper, textiles and sometimes pottery.
Paulski Art acquires and sells African Masks originating from West and Central Africa. All our masks are made out of wood with additional décor items such as shells, nails, raffia and cloth. We strive to provide our clients with what we call Museum quality masks which date anywhere from 5 to 15 years old.
