BAULE, METAL MASK 18, 8.25", $80, SOLD, Ivory Coast

Most Baule masks are wood, these are made of a copper alloy by the complex traditional lost-wax process. They can be wall hung on a single pin, the smaller ones could be worn as well. The larger ones , without a top loop, have been wired for hanging.

Although elegantly made this Baule metal mask shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.
