Passport Mask

Dan, Liberia
Early 20th c

Provenance: Oscar Agard collection, Newark, NJ acquired in the 1970’s. By descent to family member

This small wooden ma go mask is covered in leather, obscuring the facial features, creating an enigmatic haunting appearance. The patina is such that the leather is worn deep into the wooden mask; yet in a subtle way the features peak through the leather which is quite impressive. This is an early and very rare example.
