    Minimalist masks are a central element of the mangam rituals practiced by the Mama, also called Kantana. These masks are used by a male brotherhood within the ethnic group to maintain social order and encourage agricultural productivity. Their use is widespread in the northern regions of Benue, where several ethnic groups make masks with a sleek design, often worn horizontally.

    Base included.
