African Gabon Mask ii



Beautifully carved wooden ritual mask from Gabon.

This is a variation of the Traditional Punu – Gabon Mask, which represents the beauty of Punu women. The beautiful pattern around the head symbolises elaborate hairstyles of the Punu women.

The Punu people live along the upper Ngoumie River in Gabon.
