Incredible Dan fetish mask, from the western part of Cote d'Ivoire.
The item has an important crusty patina. Some tailors nails are incrusted.
This mask is not intended to dance, it is used for worship.
The back shows old insect attacks, most probably due to a long exposure to the ground during its tribal life.
Antique item of scarce quality, for collectors.
