Baule are among the most skilled and nuanced of all African mask carvers. This mask shows a man's face topped by 2 horns flanked by two ancestral likenesses.
The horns symbolize the language of extending the wearer beyond the natural into the supernatural. The face of this mask is extremely smooth and polished.The eye openings are narrow. Yet, they enable the dancer with ability to move.
Stand $140 is included
