Why We Love This

Salampasu mask with copper alloy sheeting woven over the face. The balls are made of reeds, and the rope is handmade. The headdress is completed with raffia netting at the back. This netting helps hold the mask on the face. Custom stand included. Mask and stand, 26.5"H.

About Africa Direct

Africa Direct, Inc. is owned by Elizabeth Bennett and Sara Luther. African art, trade beads and ethnic jewelry are both business and passion for Sara and me. We started buying African art twenty years ago as gifts for our children, four of whom are adopted and are African-American. We had been active in anti-apartheid politics for some time.
