Fang masks are some of the most celebrated and sought after pieces of antique and contemporary African art. They use elegant lines to depict long abstracted beautiful faces. The masquerades of early Ngil Fang Masks articulated how the mask itself held power that would transfer to the wearer.

This is a beautiful contemporary representation of the older ceremonial Fang masks. These tribal masks were worn by the notable authorities in charge of identifying those responsible for crimes.
