A MASK FLIES THE SOUL TO THE WORLD OF ANCESTORS – AN AFRICAN MASTERPIECE
In the early 1950s, in a spectacular piece of theater, the wearer of this mask, a young, strong, well trained dancer, covered in a cloak of rattan, with the mask tied tight to his head and balanced on his forehead, carved great circles in space when he spun around, then described great arcs when he bent backwards and then forwards, occasionally touching the point to the earth and then souring into the air when he jumped. This rare mask of the Bwa people in Burkino Faso, West Africa was danced once to honor the death of a high dignitary and insure the departed’s soul gained access to the world of his ancestors and was reborn. It was collected shortly after the ceremony and made its way into the important tribal art collection of Dr. H. Yonit, late of Long Island, NY, where it resided for over 50 years. For the Bwa people this ”Flying Serpent Mask” was unique to the life of the honored tribal leader and there is no other like it. For us, it is a stunning reminder that we are all capable of transformation and rebirth.
