DAN MASK

Size 22,7 CM
Material Wood
Origin Ivory Coast

Harmoniously composed by the
voluminous forehead and the tension
created by the frontal ridge and the
mouth, the great balance and the subtlety
of the expression lead to the highest
requirements of the Dan art dedicated
to beauty. The multiple layers of holes
are an illustration of the long use, like
the patina of the wood. This mask
is among the beautifulest examples
of the northern Dan style.
Provenance:
French Private Collection
