Elephant Mask - Cauris, Hout, Kralen, Tusks - Bali - Kameroen
Midden 20e eeuw - Goede staat, gebruikt met enige tekenen van slijtage

Elephant masks, worn on the top of the head, were an important part of every ritual dance sequence. The elephant was a royal icon and elephant masks were owned by lineage groups. Their importance was second only to the leader mask and was danced last, in a very stately manner, befitting its high rank.

Great elephant mask. High quality mask. Beautiful decorated with copper and metal strips. Good condition with a beautiful patina of age.
