African Tribal Face Mask Wood Hand Carved Wall Hanging Art Dan Go ge mask-35.2/32.5 CM. Ex- French African art collection Unlike the African Dan masks of the northern region with a smooth patina, the southern masks offer a grainy surface, such as this example with a majestic headdress. Two types of secondary masks intervene in a particularly theatrical way:racing masks, gunye ge, intended forinter-clan competitions which required good vision, and fire guardian masks, zapkei ge. Otherroyal masks, the go ge, used only on special occasions, have an identical appearance and are adorned with a sumptuous headdress lined with cowries, textiles, and sometimes feathers. An original patina covers the item.
