A fine Dan mask
Liberia/Ivory Coast, of delicate form; the mask with thin eyes and small raised brows; the nose rising from the curving facial plane, with a raised scarification line that descends from the apex of the mask. The angular yet sensual lips beneath gently swelling cheeks. A brass ring suspended from the chin. Coif of native cloth to the top of the mask. Variegated lustrous surface.
