The fine finish and detail work on this antelope mask are hallmarks of the Igbo master craftspeople. The sleek, simplified form is evocative, calling to mind all the beauty and grace of the antelope in motion. The precise painting adds depth and dimension to bring the antelope's still face to life. Subtly reshaping known forms to evoke specific sensations and emotions is a hallmark of African tribal art. African artists' ability to capture and represent creatures' spirits in this way influenced the development of Western Expressionism.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
