Description

A Crocodile Baule Mask. Crocodiles are considered strong protective spirits invoked to frighten away negative forces.

Ndoma masks portray an honoured person, in this case a person of high status symbolically set in the crocodiles body, 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 and symbolic scarification.
