Dance Mask, Guere Wé culture, Ivory Coast
Height: 30 cm without the beard; 51 cm including the beard.

Impressive Guere or Wé dance mask from Ivory Coast. A undeniable, wild and mysterious force emanates from it. The face is expressive, the glance is strong, with its two pairs of eyes. Horsehair and hair ornament the mask. It is covered by several layers of paint. The teeth are in metal. A spike crosses the nose. The hairdo consists of cowry shells and is finished off with little bronze bells. A beautiful, ancient and authentic piece of collection with character. Around 1960. Custom-made stand.

Provenance: Private collection, Paris.
