Dan Deangle Mask

€240.00

Gle masks in African art

This african mask incarnates forest fierceness and human elegance. Its profound authority is furthered by its motions, which also stir wonderment wherever it appears.

The Dan, located in the west of the Ivory Coast, are known for their flat masks with rounded foreheads with extruded mouths and noses. There is a wide variety depending on the characters of the bush that are represented. As seen in the attached pop-up photos, masks with the generic name "gle" were worn by characters wearing costumes and sometimes mounted on stilts.
