We have seen a few Punu mask but never one with 4 Faced, which for us holds so much mystical symbolism facing all 4 directions and really does hold it’s own presence one gazes upon it. So we are really happy to offer this rare once in a lifetime piece of art for sell and deeply sad to actually possibly have to see it go because it’s breathtaking and we know we will never see another like it again!


This persistently striking rare 20th Century Rare Beautiful 4 Face Punu Helmet Mask from Gabon definitely offers any space it’s own unique presence which in person appears to mystically and dimensional transcend any ‘norms’ of ‘ideal’ beauty standards. This is a MUST HAVE for Punu lovers and rare because it is facing the 4 directions.
