African long Ironwood maskAfrican Iron Wood Tribal Mask

Size: 45cm (H) - Mask above

A beautiful pair of African hand carved wooden masks. This handmade wooden masks are carved out of hard Iron wood and polished off to the natural orange/brown color of the wood. These masks are a pair of male and female masks. The alien like features of the mask show a long forehead with a slimming jaw line which has given to speculation that the ancient artist of Africa modeled their masks on alien like creatures that once visited the earth many years ago.

The artist that carved this tribal mask originates from Zimbabwe and is a member of the Shona people. The Iron wood that the Shona artist use is extremely tough to work with and is heavy which makes theses masks very valuable as the wood used is the best. These African iron wood masks can be made in a variety of sizes and we have the smaller iron wood mask in a African mask gallery should you be looking for a smaller mask.

Each mask is an "original" work of art, individually hand carved, no two are exactly alike which adds to the value of each piece. The original nature of tribal art will be reflected by variances from the mask as shown, each piece of a specific style is similar, but not identical.

Below we have a selection of other long Iron wood masks carved in the same style as above but with sizes. Click on the image for a larger view.
