The cylindrical, metal covered eyes (spent shotgun shells) add a flash of surreal magic to this, otherwise, realistically rendered face mask from the southern Dan areas of Ivory Coast. Such anthropomorphic masks are known as 'bagle' and show a line of carved antelope horn tips along the hairline area, tubular-shaped eyes, and vertical-ridge on the forehead. Its role in Dan masquerades is primarily for entertainment, albeit as an aggressive and somewhat temperamental character...
