African monkey mask

aaaMystrySolvd-1048aQ:  I have no idea about this mask.  John, 1048

A:  It would be nice to know dimensions, when, where and how much you paid. None the less, I can tell you it is some kind of monkey mask from West Africa. More specific information will be difficult if the mask was made for sale to tourists or exporters, which I am pretty sure is the case. Comments will be appreciated.aaaMystrySolvd-1048b

    Angeles for $5. I can measure it a little later, but it does fit perfectly on my face. Thanks for the information

    If it fits on your face there is no need measure it.

    I bought it recently at a Los Angeles thrift store for $5. I can measure it a little later, but it does fit perfectly on my face, so it is "life size" Thanks for the information

    Probably a Baule monkey mask (Ivory Coast).
