Ogbodo Enyi Mask (N° 19134)

Ex-collection of British African art.

This type of composite mask called ogbodo enyi which means "spirit of the elephant", refers to the strength and endurance of the majestic pachyderm.
Because of its exceptional characteristics, the elephant is associated with a symbol of political and spiritual power.
These masks are recognizable by their atypical shapes in projection. The top of the mask has a human head looking upwards.
Two-tone patina.
In the northeastern part of the Igbo region, these masks were worn only by men during annual festivities, including the New Yam Festival, where men wore them on their heads and waved them in quick solitary dances.
