Superb hand carved of one piece of wood Baule Kpan or
15" h by 5" w by 4.5" D
These masks are danced to entertain during days that the Baule do not work and they will also appear to honor important visitors to the village. This classic mask recalls the artistry of the Baule artists of the past. The refined and finally sculpted face may be similar to the person for whom the mask was originally sculpted to represent.
