Gold in Miniature

Museum: African Art Museum

Location: Focus Gallery, 3rd Floor, 318 A St., NE,

A 4-inch gold pendant in the form of a mask, a fine example of the goldsmith's art from the Ivory Coast, is the centerpiece of a small exhibition. Representing a male face, the piece may depict a deceased leader or a defeated enemy and may have been attached to a royal sword.

This object is the gift of Mrs. Robert Wood Bliss.
