Why We Love This

Tribal mask that presided over the ceremony held when peace was restored after armed conflict. Bete carvers are renowned for the gre or nyabwa mask, which has exaggerated, grimacing distorted features with nostrils sometimes extending to each side of the face, and globular or bulging slit eyes set beneath a high-domed forehead carved with a medium ridge.

About NOA Living

Although we break the rules of consistency by deliberately crossing boundaries between styles, we feel that one rule must remain: Be it modern or antique, there is no substitute for authenticity, imbued by a strong tradition of craftsmanship and excellence of materials.
