The African Sénufo masks are worn by members of the Poro society, an institution that controls political and economic life. Their function is to honor the elders or even appear at funerals. The masks would primarily drive the spirit of the deceased from its place of residence. The Senoufo Kpelié tribal mask means "jumping mask".
Rare Kpélié variant with a beautiful balance, coated with a powdery ocher patina.
In the center of the summit horns rises a head sculpted with the features of the mask. The side fins take on a geometric shape here.
Height on base: 65 cm.
