Despite their traditional form and appearance, Kete masks 3 - 7 show no signs of use and were probably made to be sold.

The Kete people lived along the southern border of the Kuba kingdom. Their helmet masks have similarities to several types of Kuba masks, with abstract geometric patterns executed in paint or carving, conical eyes, raffia woven caps and attachments.
