Description

Seen as essentially female, this type of face mask is worn during Poro initiation and funeral rites and in non-Poro contexts. Symbolizing the female genitalia, the scarification mark on the mask's forehead explicitly references sexuality. The lustrous black surface, imitating oiled skin, and the ornamental side projections that frame the face are hallmarks of feminine beauty.
