Maszk (1) - Fa - Gabon
Mid 20th century - Megfelelő

Fang mask from Gabon. Made of wood. Used, with damage. The sizes are 108 cm long, 10 cm deep and 20 cm wide. It weighs less than a kilogram.

The typical Fang masks of central Africa were worn during the festive initiation of new members and at the somewhat less festive persecution of criminals. Men with these masks appeared in the village after sunset, when it was dark. The lines on the mask are typical of the style of the southern Fang. Fang masks are also worn by the spiritual leaders during rituals to expel the evil spirits. But it is also a symbol of wealth and prosperity.
