Success Mask




(ULUKILE is a Sotho word describing one for whom things go right).

In African mask conventions an ornate head-dress such as this often refers to success or status Guro (Côte d' Ivoire) in that one is no longer lowly with the need to carry burdens on the head.

The Zulu (South Africa) traditionally pierced their ears and gradually expanded the hole until the distended lobe could accommodate a very large decorative disc (± 6cm).

The heaviness of this mask and solidity of design evoke substance, status and success.

The piece focuses strength, purpose, and perseverance for the wearer.
