The Igbo tribe uses thousands of masks to incarnate unspecified souls of the dead, forming a vast community of ancestral spirits. The chalk white painted face is a common Igbo representation of the benevolence of spirits, though the elongated sculptural form of this example is striking. Form, coloration, and symbolism combine into a fantastic sculptural piece.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
