Product Description

Dan masks have either human or animal features or a combination of both. Their forms may be rendered in a realistic fashion or supernaturally stylized. Face masks are distinguished on the basis of their assigned sex. "Gentle" masks, without a beard, with narrow eyes realistic nose, mouth and an oval face are described as "gle mu", feminine masks. Tankagle means something close to "dancing, miming masquerade." This mask is worn during friendly, entertainment masquerades and is meant to portray an attractive feminine face. During the ceremony the dancer wearing this mask may appear with a band and singers or with a single attendant, "gekie." The wearer of this mask will provide feel good entertainment for the spectators. He will engage in song, perform beautiful dances and act out short comical skits. The beautiful hard wood Tankagle on display features carefully outlined eyes and brows, adding to the femininity, a full mouth with real teeth, which adds power and a complete raffia headdress. The head cap is intricate, tightly woven and has a loose flowing trail.
