Mossi Mask

€345.00

Traditional animal dances

Imposing African mask with human features embellished with curved horns in the form of a blade with a very zoomorphic appearance. The set is stylized and decorated with geometric patterns.

Mossi masks from the north resemble the masks styles of the Dogon of Mali and reflect their common history. Five centuries ago, when the Mossi states were founded, some Dogon from this region were assimilated into Mossi society, while others fled to their present home, around the cliffs of Bandiagara.

As can be seen in the contextual photos, the Mossi masks compete in originality by mixing shapes and patterns.
