Emulating the graceful form of an antelope, this colorful mask by the Bozo people of Mali brought forth the animal’s protective spirit during lively group masquerades. Worn by a concealed dancer, the antelope mask is one of several animal spirits of the savannah that would be represented in group performances. The elongated mask is fitted with carefully hand-carved horns and topped by a miniature dancer - who moved along with the human dancer below. Painted with vibrant colors and bold patterns, this animated mask is fantastic mounted on a wall as a decorative sculpture.

“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.”
