Connoisseurs of African art will marvel at this male mask inspired by the Antandroy tribe of the south end of Madagascar. The “Elongated Face Mask” handsomely portrays the distinguishing characteristics of this centuries old tribe indigenous to the island of Madagascar off the coast of Africa. As testament to the harsh desert-like climate, the men of the Antandroy tribe wear a unique woven hairstyle that enables them to toil in the hot and arid conditions with a minimum of discomfort. The Elongated Face Mask accurately depicts the look and feel of the male Antandroy tribe member who spends his days toiling outdoors building plank shelters and catching game for his family.
This handcrafted, solid aluminum face mask with a solid rosewood base is the epitome of classic wall art in the African style. The detail of the hair and facial features is unsurpassed. Features a built-in hook that makes it easy to hang right out of the box. For a complete and impressive display, pair the male Elongated Face Mask with the matching solid aluminum Antandroy Lady Mask, also available here. The Elongated Face Mask is handmade, all the way from the island nation of Madagascar. This tribute to the look of the Antandroy tribe will enhance any room of your home.
