BALI, ELEPHANT MASKS, Cameroon

Elephant masks, worn on the top of the head, were an important part of every ritual dance sequence. The elephant was a royal icon and elephant masks were owned by lineage groups. Their importance was second only to the leader mask and was danced last, in a very stately manner, befitting its high rank.
