These masks are reminiscent of those that African men would hold in front of their faces during festivals. A raffia body covering would be worn along with the mask at joyful celebrations, such as a wedding, a harvest feast, or the birth of a child. Women would pray to the "Spirit" the mask represents for strength and endurance in performing household duties.

I love that it's hand done. Even with the imperfections it looks great
It goes perfectly with the African accents in my den. The wall is narrow and they fit beautifully.
