This mask with its red blue black and white alternating paint, prominent forehead and rectilinear nose originates from Gabon, within the Ngoye tribe. Aduma masks are characterised by their flat surface, their domed foreheads, an angular nose, and small openings for eyes. The mouth is minimal. They are often painted in four sections, alternating light and dark. Holes present for the mask wear to attach to head. Masks like these were used for initiation and other ceremonies. H35 w 20 d13
