Provenance:
- Private collection, UK

Carved wood and pigment, with an elaborate headdress

Gelede masks, such as this one, are worn by male Yoruba dancers at festivals honoring the women of the community, living and dead, especially the powerful Great Mothers, including both the elderly women of the community and the ancestors of Yoruba society. The gelede performances entertain and educate, and document elements of everyday life, such as the woman’s head tie in this example. Through their movements, gelede dancers express Yoruba ideals of male and female behavior.


The sculpture will be shipped via express courier with track and trace, fully insured.
1-3 days delivery within Europe. 2-5 days delivery to USA.
