The territory covered by the Fang ethnic group is vast. The people carrying these masks could travel from village to village without danger because of their role as peace-keepers.
These masks were considered useful in keeping the Fang people safe. These elongated masks are covered with white kaolin and paint and feature a face that is heart-shaped with a long, fine nose.
Also available in a mixture of neutral tones and bright reds, yellows, oranges and blues.
