a Chihonga Chokwe mask of the Delta 98 Den Haag collection


We were so happy to have this 
African Chihonga mask of the Chokwe People 
in our collection.
Not because of the stories it told,
not because it leaded to old pictures,



but because it matched so wonderful with 
a post war painting by the female Dutch artist
Lucie van Duijn (1924-2013)


Now in a private US collection
