Mask with a fine-shaped face, the eyes are rectangular on either side of a powerful nose evoking a bird's beak and virility. The originality of this mask comes from its threatening mouth showing sharp teeth. Which is unusual.
The headdress is stylized and enhanced in places with small white dots.
It is a classic initiatory mask of the "Mvondo" type.
