Yaoure Baule Mblo mask - SOLD OUT

In African art, Baoulé and Yohouré or Yaouré used several types of masks. This traditional mask represents a human head with characteristic scarifications on the temples and an elaborate hairstyle, does not seem to have a sacred function.
It only appears during holidays related to visiting foreign dignitaries. This type of tribal mask can sometimes have two faces placed side by side, evoking twins.

Beautiful internal patina with signs of grip. The external patina is typically smooth and dark, the most beautiful effect, reason why Westerners have very quickly appreciated this fine art.
Very beautiful headdress and work of the detail.
