Mask Baoulé heaume (N° 11540)

Private Italian collection of African art. Mask-heaume formed of a dome representing the bust of a character, whose arms are rounded to place the hands around the umbilical. Then rises a neck strangely covered with a padded shell composed of braids, an extension of which comes to lean on the bust a concave face. Two orifices were performed on the hem, at the height of the subject's chest, to allow the wearer's vision. The circular base is also punctuated in order to fix the raffia adornment that once accompanied the mask. Clear, velvety patina, wood with some shards and native repairs.
