Baoule lunar mask

€280.00

This African mask in the style close to that of the Master of Kamer active in Ivory Coast in the 1920s represents the Moon. It is a subject rarely illustrated in African art. This type of traditional Baoulé mask representing natural phenomena such as the rainbow, the setting sun and the moon, are generally exhibited at the start of the Gbagba procession, to "heat" the space before the arrival of the more important dance masks.
This fine and linear Baoulé mask, close to the design, has a jagged border with the most beautiful effect. Beautiful symmetry.
