Description

Twins hold interesting status around West Africa, often revered as bringers of prosperity. This is a male twin Ndoma mask. The scarification on the cheeks and forehead represent a passage into adulthood. Ndoma masks portray an honored person of the village who is celebrated during an elaborate ceremonial dance called Mblo, which is often performed on stilts. These masks represent the Baule people’s idealised vision of beauty, depicted in carefully carved features, elaborate hairstyles, and symbolic scarification.
