Mask - GUERE WE Culture - Ivory Coast
Height 28 cm - 38 cm including the beard.
Beautiful spider dance mask from Ivory Coast. The face is strong, with much presence. Regarding its expression, it seems to be hallucinating, with its long tubular eyes and its half-open mouth. A piece with much personality and sensitivity. Two nails are struck on the summit of the skull. The teeth are in wood. The colours are beautiful, the patina is ancient, with a few damages on top of the mask. The backside is well-carved. A beautiful ancient and authentic piece of collection. Around 1940.
