This is a wonderful Carved Wood Dan Beak Mask from the Tribal People of Liberia. This mask continues the motif of birds and bird beaks in Dan art, although it's features are unique. It is a cross between man and bird, with human eyes, but a ridged beak instead of lips and tongue. Adorned with an attractive, dark patina and painted red inside the mouth. The Dan are governed largely by secret societies. The Leopard Society acts as a major regulator of Dan life, and initiates young men. Famous for their masks, the Dan believe that spirits, known as "Du," live in the forests and manifest themselves to humans in masks and masquerades, instructing and sustaining the Dan in life. Thus masks are used as agents of social control. A unique mask to adorn or home or to add to your collection.
