Mounts / Stands

Discover African Art not only sells one-of-a-kind, African artwork, but we also build custom mounts and stands to go with our pieces. Our stands are very well-made, beautiful and let the art shine. Displaying your African piece with a custom-made mount or stand is also a great way to keep your piece safe and in good condition for years to come. The metal we use is a durable steel we can surface with an assortment of finishing options.

Custom stands are available for many of the items in our inventory. Please contact us directly if you would like to purchase a custom stand for your piece.

Currently we have three basic configurations. Please see details below.

Face Mask Stand

Around the back-side of most masks there are holes that the tribal people would use to attach costumes. We use these holes to custom fit a stand for art lovers to display their pieces freely. Our craftsmen take height, weight and balance into consideration when perfecting each stand individually.

Base Stand

A base stand would be used to keep certain figures standing upright. Most pieces require a hole drilled into the bottom in which a stem is inserted that is attached to a base. Each object is individually measured to assure a tight fit and maximum immobility for display
