Large Mask Dié Anomane (bird) with horns - Wood - Yaure - Côte d'Ivoire

Description
Large Mask Dié Anomane (bird) with horns - Wood - Yaure - Côte d'Ivoire
vintage - Good

This incredible mask with horns, topped by a standing bird, is a good example of high quality, reached by the Yaure sculptors.
The serene beauty of the face speak for itself.
The Mona Lisa smile adds a lot to its aesthetic appeal.
Everything is in perfect harmony and balance, clearly carved by an artist with an excellent sense of space and composition.
The inside is pleasant and dry, it presents traces of wear.
It is quite possible that this piece comes from the same workshop in which worked a sculptor named Kuakudili, an artist identified by Hans Himmelheber in 1934.
There is a little native repair on one horn, it is almost invisible.
Without lack.
Some traces of wear.

A mask of mesmerising beauty.

Former private Parisian collection.

Shipment via express parcel with track & trace.
