Kokole Kwain Mask of the Dja - Yaure - Ivory Coast
Provenance: private collection, France.
Dimensions: 57 x 21 cm.
This mask with a magnificent patina and a marvellous symmetry has a summit panel, topped by four projections which extremities are inlaid with pigment of a light colour. We can also find recurrent triangular motifs in the Yaure artistic corpus.
In fact, the open-worked crenellation on the beard refers to it. The headdress is composed of three lobes, which are also finely carved and ornamented with triangular motifs. This is a protection mask. Little protruding geometric mouth. Wonderful internal patina.
