Ghanaian Hand Carved Wooden Crocodile 'Jungle Green'

DESCRIPTION

The crocodile has long been associated with African mythology. They are historically worn by dancers during ceremonies in an effort to manifest wilderness spirits. The presence of the mask plays a role in socialising, mediating, and protecting members of the community. It'll look super snappy in a child's bedroom, keeping a watchful eye.

Traditional masks have been incorporated within African ceremonies and cultural celebrations for thousands of years. Today, these artifacts are often used as a stylistic counterpoint to contemporary styles, adding an artisanal element to modern designs.
