TSOGO MASKS, Gabon

Tsogo masks are controlled by the Bwiti men's initiation society. The masks represent supernatural beings, each type has its own name and symbolism. They are used in initiation ceremonies and share the kaolin white surface with their Gabon neighbors, the Fang, Punu and Kwele.

These Tsogo masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
