Djimini Mask


Artwork explanation

The art of Djimini people is influenced by the neighboring Senufo and their wonderfully carved mask combine human and animal elements.

The mask was worn with an elaborate costume consisting of a shirt, grass skirt and trousers made from locally woven cotton.

 

Distinguishing features:

There are some elements of the wings by the eyes and hairline, bird legs at the side of the face and the scarification marks on the face.

Another mark of Ligbi origin is the use of the patterned scarification above the eyes and the elaborate coiffure is very similar to the Baule hairstyles.

 


Artwork Description

It is used during ritual ceremonies.
