Dan mask (N° 21953)

br>
For the Dan, or Yacouba, living in the west of the Ivory Coast and in Liberia, the "dü" force that would animate the world would manifest itself in the sculpted masks. It is in this way that she seeks to bring knowledge to man in order to support him, and first uses the channel of dreams. The spirits then indicate how to name the mask they wish to see made. These masks of different types are endowed with social, spiritual and political functions, often changing over time. Mask with a concave center, and whose diamond-shaped mouth evoking luscious lips forms a constant of dan masks, and whose slit eyes belong to the dangling type. It is embellished here with a goatee of braided raffia, and, at the top, crusty residues of ritual practices. Black satin patina, abrasions.
Height on base: 40 cm.
