Mask "Kepeliyee" Senufo, Ivory Coast

The Senufo lived in northern Ivory Coast, Mali and Burkina Faso.
They have zoomorphic and anthropomorphic masks.
These are called Kepeliyee and evoke a beautiful young woman, they are extremely stylized and easily recognizable, linked to Poro initiation, fertility rituals and funerals.

Above the face is a majestically carved sitting female figure holding a pair of elaborately carved antelope horns. This is simply known as the mask of the "lady": she is a fertility figure with enlarged breasts and usually a distended stomach, which suggests that she is pregnant.


This item will be carefully packed and shipped with tracking code.
