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. This is an example of a Dege mask, also named black monkey.
This mask has a total height of 34 cm and a width of 15,5 cm.
With a very strong expression.
Good condition, have a look at the pictures.
