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.
