Das internationale Maskenmuseum Michael Stoehr in 86420 Diedorf zeigt in 10 Räumen auf 3 Geschossen Masken aus aller Welt, die nach Ländern und Erdteilen gegliedert präsentiert werden. Ein Raum steht als Medienraum zur Verfügung. Dort kann man in einer gut sortierten völkerkundlichen Bibliothek graben gehen, die Bücher kaufen oder ausleihen. Auch gibt es Filme über die Nutzung von Masken und Diashows, die interaktiv erlebt werden können.

Das Museum ist als private Einrichtung allerdings nur zu bestimmten Zeiten zugänglich. Weitere Informationen gibt es unter

This mask is from Man in Cote d'Ivoire. If there are any experts on African art out there I would be very appreciative of any information you may be able to give about the origin, purpose, or potential value of this mask.

The carving is pretty rough.
Also the decoration is simple, and seems never been used.

Actually it looks like a simple souvenir (which have been produced for decades),
and doesnt´make a very exclusive and valuable impression.

People simply bring it back from a tourist journey ...

Hello there. I am new to this type of collectable, but really love African Art
I have recently aquired a doll/figure, which I am anxcious to know more info.
The person I bought it from didn't know anything about it, so I thought I'd turn to the experts.
It is a hardwood carved doll dressed in long flowing clothes decorated in Bells, shells and beads.
The figure is sat down with his arms folded and has what look like bongos in front of him? Although
there are a number of sticks at the bottom of the bongos? so may be something else?
On the shoulders are what look like either a second pair of arms, or a pair of horns?
Also there is a hole in the mouth which looks like at one time there was somethin in there.
The doll stands at about 8" tall.
If anyone has any idea of the original purpose of this type of figure, and if possible it's worth,
I would be very appreciative.
All there is to add is thatI don't know what made me purchase this, but something told me to?
and I really liked the look of it.
Thank you so much for your time and effort.

I was wondering if you could help me figure out where these guys come from, and how old they might be?
They are made from stone, and about 17cm tall. I thought they might be African, but you would have a better idea about that!
Thanks in advance for your help!

Oil paintings have been in use for centuries in africa, however examples are hard to find, many sites - like the prefer to be a contemporary african paintings gallery. It is often possible to find parchment or rock art pieces however.

Hello, I have a small collection of African masks and I'm not exactly sure which particular Dogon mask I have.  I purchased it in Africa on my last trip and was told that it was a Dogon Crocodile mask. Someone else told me that it was a Dogon but not a Crocodile mask.  Can anyone help me determine exactly which mask this is? Thanks...
