Baule Mask (N° 27102) Deposit sale

The African art of the Baoulé, an Akan group established in the South-East of Ivory Coast, includes a vast range of masks renowned for their quality, finesse and symmetry, very popular in interior decoration.
Appearing today during celebrations associated with the Gbagba dance, this African mask integrates all the masks associated with natural phenomena, such as the setting sun, the rainbow and the moon, and "warms up" the scene before the appearance of more important masks.
This circular mask surrounded by jagged edges offers a serene face where the forehead, the seat of intelligence and wisdom, is highlighted. The half-closed eyes reinforce the interiority of the expression.
Satin patina, burgundy brown. Slight chips.
