Africa | Mask with Crocodiles. West Africa | This mask celebrates the harmony between two kindred spirits. This harmony can be inferred from the interlocking of the two heads by the bird and the crocodiles. The bird binds the two tails while wrapping its own limbs around them and holding by its beak a connection between both heads. These represent harmony in thought as well as the likeness of the two faces.
