Igbo mask (N° 22987)

Sober version of the Igbo mask associated with the spirit of a young girl. The headdress is made up of three braids in a vertical bouquet. The scarifications here are discreet, in the cob, and in hatching on the forehead. Slight lack on the outline, abrasions.
The Igbo live in the forest in southeastern Nigeria. They managed to combine a deep sense of individuality with an equally strong sense of belonging to the group.
The village is the most important social unit, the smallest being the extended family. Each village has a high degree of autonomy and is placed under the authority of the oldest lineage head.
The religion of the Igbo includes on the one hand the god Chuku, supreme creator, considered omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, and on the other hand the spirit of the land Ala.
