African Dogon "Dege" Mask 57

Item # CA100610C3KM

This African wooden Mask, from the Dogon people of Mali and Burkina Faso, stands 14 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide. These Dogon masks, incorporating human and animal features, are danced at festivals, weddings, funerals, initiation rites and more. Crowds of dancers, often numbering in the hundreds, place the masks on top of their heads with long suits of raffia covering their bodies. Their dance is accompanied by the invigorating rhythm of drums. This mask represents the "dege", or the black monkey of the forest whose violent, uncivilized behavior a proper Dogon citizen will avoid. - FREE US SHIPPING
