Dan Go Ge mask


Treasures from Côte d'Ivoire

This African Dan Go Ge mask is one of the rare masks covered with a thick patina of very crusty use.
In the African art of the Dan, the traditional masks are more generally smooth and lustrous which gives them a smooth and very dark patina.

In terms of shapes, the mask remains faithful to the general aesthetic canons: ovoid shape, the forehead is rounded, the eyes simply slit whose eyelids are detailed; the nose and the mouth are protruding.

In Dan cultural conceptions, the masks embody the spirits of the bush who come to dance during rites and festivities.
