Description

This Dan Mask or gle (which is a scholarly term used to refer to Dan masks and to invisible, supernatural spirit forces that the mask is believed to embody) is considered a bu gle - representing a war gle and whose qualities are thought of as masculine.
Bu gle masks are designed to frighten. Their eyes are depicted as protruding tubes and the surface of the face has boldly projecting angles. The holes along the hairline of this mask was probably decorated with animal or human hair or fur.
The mask is in original vintage condition. Probably dates to the mid twentieth century.
