Ngbandi Initiation Mask
A very good example of an Ngbandi mask associated with community initiation ceremonies.
The shape of the ears, eyes and the some what pointed chin along with the vertical scarification on the nose and forehead all are clear indicators of Ngbandi tradition. Very good condition with wear from use and age as indicated in the images.
