Duality is a common thread that runs through all of human history, culture, and interaction. It’s the idea that no one force or power exists alone, but that everything is complemented by something equally as important—day and night, light and darkness, warmth and chill, and, when it comes to this iconic Two-Face Mask, the masculine and feminine, the male and the female.
Handmade by artisans from Madagascar, this striking piece of wall decor confronts its onlookers with this duality. Everything—the world, communities, guiding philosophies—require both feminine and masculine touches. There are times for strength, durability, aggression, and force. There are also times for tenderness, compassion, resilience, and empathy. There are many times for both.
It also serves as to remind that different things are not necessarily unequal things. Men and women can be different but still equal in value and worth. Differences can unite and become something better and beautiful—precisely like this Two-Face Mask, which represents duality in both symbolism and construction. The aluminum facade challenges and entertains, while the rosewood backing stands firm and supports. With one, the other could not exist in tandem.
It is crafted with a hook for easy hanging.
