African art > African mask, tribal art, primitive art > Kurumba Mask
The masks Adone of the Kurumba of ancient Sudan, like our copy, are danced to bring rain, at the beginning of the agrarian season or in case of severe drought. The features enhanced with burgundy red are concentrated in the middle of the reduced face mask. At the top, supported by a long curved neck, an antelope head with perforated ears and vertical horns has an ajar snout. Velvet polychrome matte patina. Local abrasions and desication cracks.
