Description

Master carver Christopher Nyasafo faithfully replicates the legendary mask of the Kwele people in Gabon, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo. It features two long horns that encircle the face with a heart-shaped aura. The masks are regarded as highly protective and are controlled by the Bwete Association, who maintains social order. They are used in ceremonies which promote well-being and community. Nyasafo carves the sese wood wall mask by hand and paints it blue, white, brown, and light orange.
