Rare mask in semi-hard wood, with a serene face, wonderful patina of wear.
On the cheeks we can note a sort of little horns, materialised in white, probably referring to elephants.
Around the face, a polychrome braid probably symbolises a snake.
On the backside of the mask, an ancient leather belt surrounds the mask,
Bete masks are easily recognisable by the great refinement of their expression.
The most well-known and representative masks are masks initially related to warrior rites.
