Wood, pigments, fiber, cloth, metal
Female masks (Deangle) always have slitted eyes and small ears pierced for earrings. White paint often accents the eyes, as in the present example. A hairstyle with long braids has been made of fibers covered with cloth with long braids made of tightly wrapped fiber. The Deangle mask is made for a gentle Gle forest spirit and is always thought of as female. The mask epitomizes Dan ideals of feminine beauty. Its function may be to nurture, teach or entertain.
