Appeared to the Okuyi African masks of Punu ethnic groups tribes Shira , African masks produced by peripheral groups, Vuvi, Galoa and Mitsogho, and the Masangos located east of the Mitsoghos, are also covered with white pigments with an apotropaic purpose. br / The Mitsogho, Sogho, is established in a forested region on the right bank of the Ngoumé River in central Gabon. The male initiation society Bwiti which has a system of reliquaries comparable to that of the Fang and Kota, formed the cohesion of the Mitsogho families. Their masks were displayed at the funeral, and stored in the men's initiation house ebanza . The Vuvi produced relatively comparable masks, influenced by the proximity of the Mitsogho.
