Om föremålet

35 x 25 cm.Wood, nails, hair, libations, cowry shells. Former collection. BE - Information shall be provided to the buyer. We can note on masks from the west of Ivory Coast, as well as on those from the southeast of Liberia, some common specific features, in this case, the tubular eyes, which are sometimes accompanied by arched appendages, reminding the spider. The expression of this mask is highlighted by the addition of a multitude of elements, such as the gaping mouth, as well as the many teeth. The circumference presents little wooden spikes and the headdress is decorated with cowry shells. These sorts of masks often served to prepare men during warrior ceremonies. They had to provoke fear to the enemy and they certainly frightened women and children, who formed the crowd of these dancers. Shipment within 24 working hours. With track & trace. With acknowledgement of receipt.
