Set of (3) Masks: 12" African Gabon Cameroon Wood Fang Masks: Black and White
Beautifully crafted Set of 3 assorted Gabon Cameroon wood Fang masks will add a bit of Africa to your decor.
Size: 12" x 2" - 4".
An older traditional Fang mask that originates from the rain forests of Gabon on the western coast of Africa and has been handcrafted out of wood. The Fang people use masks when playing out traditional ceremonies such as weddings and funerals and will often be seen in traditional dance wearing masks when they are persecuting wrongdoers. A majority of Fang tribesmen and women live in the equatorial rain forest in Gabon and have passed down their skills and traditions of the myths of the masks from generation to generation.
Fang people are heaped high in tradition and to date a lot about their culture is still unknown to the western population. This Fang mask is from the older generation and has become a sought after collector's item. The masks are unique to the Fang people and a must for African collectors.
All sizes listed are approximate. The Fang mask you purchase and receive may differ just slightly in size, look, and/or color from the mask shown in the picture because each mask is handcrafted and hand painted by individual artists.
