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. We wish there really was such a thing as pink crocodiles, they're so pretty. The perfect wall art for any jungle themed rooms.
Traditional masks have been incorporated within African ceremonies and cultural celebrations for thousands of years. Today, these artefacts are often used as a stylistic counterpoint to contemporary styles, adding an artisanal element to modern designs.
