The Dancing Sowei: Performing Beauty in Sierra Leone

March 21 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

This exhibition focuses on one spectacular work in the Cantor’s collection—a sowei mask, used by the women–only Sande Society that is unique to Sierra Leone. Used in dance by senior women of the society, the sowei mask symbolizes knowledge of feminine grace and is part of a young girl’s initiation into adulthood.
