While originating from the African continent, this mask is likely not created by the tribe who invented the design. The tribal attribution indicates the origin of the design, not the object.

This mask can either hang flat on a wall (as pictured) or be mounted with the top raffia cloth piece pulled down perpendicular to the mask the way it would have been worn. The lighter colored raffia cloth attached to the back of the mask can be taken off if desired, leaving the "beard" raffia and headdress in place. The "beard" raffia could also be removed.
