This is the companion to the Zulu King Warrior mask (which has already sold) and Zulu Commander.  It was inspired by pictures that the artist saw.  He then carved a Zulu King, Queen, and Commander mask.  Each piece does stand on its own, however, although the set would be striking together.

You can see the strength and resolve in the face of this Zulu warrior Queen.  I would not want to meet her on the battle field.

The piece is substantial, standing 18 inches high, 9.5 wide and weighing 6.5 pounds.  The detail is very nice with the straight lines used in the headdress.  This beautiful african mask is carved in fine Nigerian hardwoods.
