Janus Firespitter Mask
Senufo Tribe, Ivory Coast
Wood (one piece)

W: 42"
Inventory # 10361

This type of incredible helmet mask belongs to antiwitchcraft associations of the Senufo tribe. The mask is used to combat negative forces, like those of witches, criminals, and marauding bush spirits. Often, the masquerader would walk through, spit, or otherwise manipulate fire, giving rise to the name “firespitter.” 

This piece is large, heavy, and fragile, and will require crating to be shipped. We will address the cost of crating and shipping with the buyer.
