Early 20th century - Good condition

The DOGON have more than eighty kinds of masks, crafted to represent the characters of their cosmic myths. They are worn by large numbers during funerary dances. The DOGON use these dances to guide the homeless souls to their resting place, in the world of the spirits, where they become part of the ancestors. Some masks tell the stories, next to the dances. An example of all this is the dymmo mask (rabbit), which appears with the dannana mask (hunter). The hunter pretends to hunt several rabbit masks, and then, they start to flee in all directions, and hide among the crowd, on the village square.
Described in “Imperato, Dogon Cliff Dwellers, L. Kahan Gallery Inc., 1978".
Mali, Bandiagara region.
This mask has a total height of 55,5 cm.
Very strong expression with its fierce curved ears.
Nice weathered appearance.
Good condition, with 2 tribal gluings on the tip of each ear, have a look at the pictures.

  • Certificate is a copy and not a valid one, without signature from the "expert". The image NOT Indo-portuguese but from Africa, nothing similar to the indo-portuguese images. Besides an impolite seller
