Product Description

The price is for one mask!. Mask 4 is the first mask on the right.

During the 18th -19th centuries the Fang migrated from the northwest and today are scattered across Cameroon, Guinea and Gabon. Their social structure is based on the clan and family. Cohesion among the eighty or so Fang clans is maintained through powerful religious and judiciary societies called the So and Ngil. This Ngil society mask was worn by members who acted as a policing power during certain important village rituals. On occasion they were worn by the feared few who handed down sentences of wrong doers. The French colonials banned use of these elongated masks following a series of ritual murders in 1910. The Fang are very proud of the Ngil masks and what they represent.

This selection has been used in tribal celebrations. These masks look very nice when hung together!
