Mask - Wood - Ancienne collection Robert Lemariey (France, Paris) - Dan - Liberia

Description
Mask - Wood - Ancienne collection Robert Lemariey (France, Paris) - Dan - Liberia
Good

Very sensitive witness of the art which has evolved in the border region between Ivory Coast and Liberia, this mask magnificently allies the force of the volumes to the elegance of the northern Dan style. The balance of the features lies in the tension of the strong axial lines, whereas the narrow incision of the slit eyes identifies it to a masculine face in the Dan country.
