African wooden dance mask from the Bambara ethnic group in Mali.
Rejoicing mask. This type of Bambara mask represents a high ranked person with a serene face, symbol of power, it appeared to celebrate the arrival of an important person from another village.
Well-proportioned mask with a wonderful patina of wear.
This mask is representative of Bambara art, with a lovely balance between the forms and the volumes, as well as finely carved details.
This mask is extremely stylised and this form could have served to inspire cubist painters between the late 19th and the early 20th century.
