Ivoirian Flamingo Guardian
Hand Carved Ivoirian African Mask
A flamingo spreads graceful wings above a quiet face in a gesture of protection. Serenely lovely, symmetrical features convey a sensation of peace and well being. Salihu Ibrahim carves the piece from African sese wood, a superlative example of Guro art. Among the Guro people of Cote d'Ivoire, such masks represent the spirits of the underworld.
