Doe Mask

Tanzania 

Ceremonial Mask. Doe Culture, Tanzania

This early ceremonial mask features a prominent parted hairstyle typically worn by members of the Doe culture in Tanzania in the early part of the last century. The mask exhibits a raw form, with circular-shaped eyes and a strong, primal expression. The roughly chiselled surface of the mask bears visible groove marks, as a result of having been carved with a hand axe. 

It is unusual to find masks from the Doe culture of Tanzania. The mask features similar characteristics to those found among the art and sculpture of the neighbouring Kwere people, namely the carved parted coiffure. 

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century (1930s Or Before)
