Dan Mask
Dan Mask <br> Ivory Coast <br> <br> For the most part, the Dan occupy the wooded savanna region of western Ivory Coast and, to a lesser degree, adjacent areas of eastern Liberia. Traditionally farmers of rice and manioc, the Dan also work immense cacao and coffee plantations. The Dan had a reputation as a fierce warrior society. <br> <br> Dan masks have a typically high forehead, pouting mouth, and pointed chin. They may also have scarification marks like the line that splits the forehead in our example. Dan masks are carved in wood and stained with a brown dye. They are sacred objects. Dan masks are used for protection and as a channel for communication with the spirit world. <br> <br> Amongst the Dan in West Africa, face masks in a myriad of forms were used in elaborate masquerades that took place seasonally. Dan masquerades are the material manifestation of spirits. The masks are not vehicles of the spirit, but rather are the spirit, whether dressed or lying to the side. The mask, with its delicate sensibility in the face and traces of kaolin around the eyes, is an exceptional example of the “Gunyege” or racing masquerade and is only found in northern Dan regions. <br> <br> A finely carved Dan mask with a hollow oval form, sensitive open lips, circular eyes, and both a protruding nose and mouth making a strong lined profile. A beautifully made coiffure from raffia as the beard. <br> <br> Compare: “Das zweite Gesicht, Afrikanische Masken” Slg.
