KWELE, MASKS ARCHIVES, Gabon

Kwele masks are controlled by the Bwete association, which maintains social order. They are used in ceremonies to promote well-being and community. Some did not have eye slits and were shown to onlookers rather than worn. The horn motifs echo the heart shaped face, The masks are considered to be among the most beautiful in African art.
