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.
