2nd half of the 20th century - Very nice condition

Origin: Ivory Coast.
Name of the tribe: Dan
Material: Wood.
Height: 1st mask: 265 mm - second mask: 215 mm
Width: 1st mask: 150 mm - second mask: 130 mm.
Weight: 1st mask: 104 mm - second mask: 176 grams

Dan masks with a bulging forehead, a thin nose and a mouth carved with precision.
They are decorated with animal materials such as hair.
The DAN materialise the mask with a more or less idealised face of a woman or child. According to tradition, the mask wearer was chased by a runner without mask, if he was caught, he had to pass on the mask to the winner, who would in turn be chased by another runner. These races were formerly intended to train men for races and combats.
They are now more often related to festivities and initiation rites involving young children.

These two parts are from a family heirloom. They are in superb condition.
