Painted white, serene features suggest one who has passed on to the realm of spirits. The tall hairdo denotes a woman from the Punu tribe of the upper Ngoume River region of southwestern Gabon. Salihu Ibrahim carves a dramatic mask linked with peace, deities, spirits of the dead, and the afterlife, and thus with funeral rites.
