The blues, whites, grays, and browns of this double bird mask are a signature feature of master Mossi sculptors from Burkina Faso. This double bird would have been a ritual dancing mask representing its owner's totemic animal. The organic geometry commands the eye, directing viewers to explore the finely wrought details of this entire sculptural object.

“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.”
