    Dance MASK
    Gouro culture, Ivory Coast
    First half of the 20th century
    H.: 36.5; L.: 14.5; Thickness: 8 cm

    Anthropomorphically carved wooden face mask. His eyes are half-closed, his nose is thin, his mouth closed, his ears worked in slight relief at the temples. Scarifications punctuate his face: on the corners of the lips and on the temples, in four rectangles. He wears a beard cut into triangles and finished in a small tongue-shaped goatee, his slightly domed forehead is incised with grooves signifying the braids. Finally, the top of the forehead is animated by a figure representing a monkey.
