Product Description

The Fang of eastern Guinea and northern Gabon are a proud people with a very rich history. The Fang were great elephant hunters and traded ivory with other Africans. Europeans feared them because it was rumored that they were cannibals and practitioners of sorcery. The Fang having tremendous fortitude and foresight did not trust the Europeans nor did they participate in slave trading. Artistically, the Fang were highly developed. This type of mask, common to the region is used during special dance ceremonies wherein the ancestors are asked to bless them with prosperity. The mask itself exudes richness. From the many imbeded cowry shells and lustrous bronze inlays to the 4 genuine African copper Kobo coins that appear on each mask. The coins were first released in 1991 and withdrawn in 2007! The contrasting black background color is made from wood dust and other ingredients. These rare, smaller versions will stand out in any collection. Slight variations will occur from set to set. The price is for the pair.
