Exceptional "Dogon - DyoDyonume" mask - Dogon - Mali

Exceptional "Dogon - DyoDyonume mask; Topped horns, ears and a small ""altar"" cavity where libatory residues remain. The healer mask evolves in a satirical pantomime, as does the hunter mask, evoking the legend that the first ancestor tried to cure the Walu antelope before it died. Marcel Griaule counted no less than 78 types of Dogon masks during his eld investigations. This piece, with its stylized features, is characteristic of Dogon creations. Old French Collection Beautiful matte polychromy, crusty residue here and there Condition: some old damage on horns and ears, crack in wood - otherwise in good condition (see pictures) Our Guarantees: - Packaged with the greatest care in a double sided box - Shipped with tracking information. - Shipments of objects above 100 Euro will be insured. - A certificate of authenticity can be provided on request with every purchased item over 250 Euro.
