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.

“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.”
