Questions About this item?
An amazing mask from the Senufo tribe of the Ivory Coast. Intricately carved with the traditional heart-shaped face and horns. Such ‘kpelie’ or ‘kodal masks’ of the Senufo people are among the best-known mask types of Africa. They generally have a small, mask face with slit eyes, a narrow, curving nose and a small, strongly protruding mouth, with visible teeth. These masks were worn during ceremonies. In a very good original condition, with a wonderful patina. A great addition to any tribal art collection or fantastic eye-catching stand-alone accent piece.
Dimensions: 19 x 9 x 42 cm.
