Description: KWOMA MYTHICAL DANCE MASK
   
  Unique to the Kwoma people, this mask is a representation of a mythical spirit. During initiation
  ceremonies, masks such as this are fastened to large, conical dance costumes worn by village
  elders who perform the rituals that transform boys into men. Carved from hardwood, this large mask
  displays an encrusted patina throughout and vivid red glass rings for eyes.
