Passport mask, ma go

Dan, Liberia
Early 20th c

Previous Collection: Dr. Marc Smalle, South Africa, acquired in the 1970’s. Then by descent to family member.

This is a very fine passport mask; its face is less naturalistic and more abstract in conception.  This example is carved from very hard wood with a wonderful rich blackened patina from decades of handling.  In its mouth, there are two thin metal teeth.
