ADUMA, MASKS, Gabon

Despite their appearance, these Aduma masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.

Aduma masks are characterized by their flat surface, their domed foreheads, an angular nose, and small openings for eyes. The mouth is often minimal or omitted.They are often painted in four sections, alternating light and dark.. Masks like these were used for initiation and other ceremonies.
