Kpeliye Mask - SENUFO - Ivory Coast Provenance: private collection, FranceOwnership: Art-Africain-Traditionnel.comHeight without the headdress: +/- 30-35 cmMaterials: wood, fabric, cowry shells. These kinds of masks were worn during funerals of members of the Poro society, which is a system of political and economical control, training the young through initiation rites, turning them into adults who are integrated in the life of the village. It teaches to the initiates to recognise the signs related to their cultural identity. We can observe on this piece the duality of the Senufo way of thinking, about the ambiguity of the human being, men and women, twins, the body and the spirit, life and death. These elongated faces present traditional appendages on the sides. The Senufo are composed of more than thirty entities, with own local varieties regarding the language and the culture. Their geographical location was determined by the flows of the populations punctuated by history. Express and secure shipment.
