Appearing today during celebrations associated with the Gbagba dance, this African mask integrates the set of masks associated with natural phenomena, such as the setting sun, the rainbow and the moon, and "warms" the scene before the appearance of more important masks.
This circular mask, inlaid with decorative metal elements, offers fine, split features.
Smooth reddish brown patina.
The African art of the Baoulé, an Akan group established in the South-East of Ivory Coast, includes African masks transposing the main facial features of a very beautiful young girl or a remarkable man, "portrait masks " ndoma, which were exhibited during particularly theatrical events where women played a major role, on the other sacred masks, of conjuration, and initiation, intervening during ceremonies which were forbidden to them.
