Satimbe Mask - Dogon People, Mali M23

$2,400.00
The Dogon people have an annual ceremony called the Dama, during which some 80 different style of masks are danced to commemorate those who have passed away during the past year. The Satimbe mask is surmounted by a female figure which represents Yasigine, the sister of the masks, the only woman admitted to the Awa male society. The Dogon inhabit the Bandiagara Cliffs of Mali, a veritable fortress, and have remained there to this day, as one of Africa's most spiritual people.
