Wawa Ogbodo Enyi Mask (N° 10364)

Ex private English collection of African art.

This type of mask called ogbodo enyi which means spirit of the elephant", refers to the strength and endurance of the majestic pachyderm. Due to its exceptional characteristics, the elephant is associated with a symbolic of political and spiritual power. These masks are recognizable by their atypical forms in projection. The top of the mask has an anthropomorphic head looking up. The piece has retained a beautiful polychrome. These masks were worn only by men during annual festivities where they wore them on the head and waved them on fast dances.
