Regular features curve like the crescent moon in a gentle, smiling face. Sculpted of sese wood, the slender visage is richly incised with parallel lines. The visual texture enhances smooth fields of blue and brown in this mask by Salihu Ibrahim. He portrays a deity of the Fang tribe of Gabon, invoked by fishermen to assure a bountiful catch.
