Former French collection.
Acquired at an auction of Étude de Provence, in Marseille, the 18th November 2018.
African Dan Mask of “fire” or “Fireman” Mask in wood, fabric and vegetable fibres, from Ivory Coast.
The teeth are in metal and the eyes are circled with a metal washer.
This mask looks like a racing mask. However, its role was very different, these masks are in charge of watching over domestic fires, and when the harmattan blows, it berates the housewives to call them to order. The husband is punishable by a fine to be paid by the chief of the sacred house of the village for having caused the intervention of this mask. The fireman mask can also take the lead in operations in case of fire or bush fire.
