This is a unique Carved Wood Twin Face Baule Mask from the Ivory Coast of Africa. In Baule communities in Côte d'Ivoire, Mblo performances comprise skits that feature masked dancers who impersonate familiar subjects that range from animals to human caricatures. The dances escalate in complexity and importance and eventually culminate in a performance that pays tribute to the community's most admired member. The individual thus honored is depicted by a mask that is conceived as his or her artistic "double" or "namesake." The highly stylized compositions of double-faced twin masks are the abstract projection of ideas relating to complementary opposites. Traditionally, Baule villages owned up to a dozen of these Mblo masks, though not all of them necessarily appeared at every performance. A fabulous mask to adorn your home or add to your collection.
