Anthropo-zoomorphic mask - Wood - MBLO - BAOULE / BAULE - Côte d'Ivoire
Avslutad auktion

Om föremålet

The Mblo reflects, more than any other mask, the foundations of Baoulé aesthetics. The surfaces are smooth, curved, well-polished, suggesting healthy skin, showing off the hairstyle and scarifications. It has a high forehead, symbolising intelligence, and the eyes are lowered in respect for the surrounding world. \nMblo is the name of a category of shows which use facial masks, in solo dances, sometimes parodies. \nThe course of the show is very structured and uses a script, including some with very famous names (Kpan Kpan, GbaGba). \nThe script evolves and is regularly rewritten every two or three generations.\nAdapted from the book L'art Baoulé by S. Vogel Ethnographic & Tribal Art---
