This mask is from the Ivory Coast. The Fang ethnic group controls a large area of land. Because of their function as peacekeepers, persons wearing these masks could go from village to village without risk. These masks are said to be beneficial in keeping the Fang people secure. These elongated masks are coated in white kaolin and paint and have a heart-shaped face with a long, delicate nose.
