Mask of the Ivory Coast in hard wood, the rounded forehead, a dark patina, a projection mouth and a fabric ornament decorated with cowries (shells).

In African Art, all Dan masks are sacred.

They do not represent the spirits of the bush, but embody them.

Aesthetic constants: a rounded forehead, a thin nose, a mouth drawn with precision.

 

Height 36 cm

 

Provenance: succession of a doctor passionate about African Art who brought back many sculptures during his travels.
