My interests include African masks. Collection of African masks.
Masks have also be used to discipline women, children, and criminals. For example, in Africa, a mother might paint a scary face on the bottom of a water gourd to make sure the child followed her directions. Along the Guinea coast of West Africa, many realistic masks represent ancestors; the masks symbolize sanction control when worn. The Dan and Ngere tribes of Liberia and Ivory Coast use ancestor masks as intermediaries for the transmission of petitions or offerings of respect to the gods.
