This mask has been vetted as authentic, dating from the mid to late 20th Century.

This mask was vetted by Daniel Mato, author (with Charles Miller III) of Sande, Masks and Statues from Liberia and Sierra-Leone.

The front top piece is broken off (see last detail below). There is some damage on the right ear and lots of damage to the left one; and a repaired crack on the back (see details below).  There is some white and blue pigment remaining in the hair. The interior has not been darkened.
