Bird mask passports by Dan

216

This fascinating passport represents the union between human and animal, between man and bird. Infact, there is a big beak instead of lips and tongue.  The patina enhances the sculpture.

The people of Dan extends on the north-west of Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire. This ethnic group lives mainly in forested regions; it’s made up of farmers and growers who regularly move from the forest to create new fields. They can also live by hunting and fishing. The art of Dan is expressed mainly with wooden masks, which give a lot of importance and power to those who wear them.
