The African masks in african art are dramatic portraits of spirit beings, departed ancestors, and invisible powers of social control. Each mask was made according to a traditional style, and each was worn by a trained performer. The African masks that hang on walls of Western art museums, detached from their full-body costumes, were originally part of whole performance ensembles, consisting of elaborately costumed dancers, vibrant music, and highly stylized dances. These complex ceremonial events expressed important social, religious, and moral values for the whole community. With careful attention to the masks' artistic and symbolic detail, it is possible to perceive these same values within the masks themselves.
All the masks on this website exhibition are from the African art collection in the African antiques art shop, unless otherwise indicated and can be visited in Antwerp (find address at bottom of page). We have Museum quality pieces minimum 50 years old.
The african mask you see above is an Eastern Pende Panya-Yombe mask panel that what used to decorate the Man's house and part of David Norden collection.
