Mask Ivory Coast

MAS33

From ancient times, no society has ignored the importance of the mask. From Greek antiquity to modern Africa, Asia and Oceania, masks have symbolized Gods, have incarnated beauty or fear, have expressed illusion but also order or tranquility. This is a very typical version from the Ivory Coast, in the effigy of a man, used mainly for traditional ceremonies. It's prodigiously modern, with its original aged patina.
