Souvenir - Tikar ritual mask

Female tribal mask from the Tikar tribe in northwest Cameroon. Purchased in the craft market in Douala. The Tikar ruled large parts of Central and West Africa, until they were decimated by the slave trade.

This mask is small enough to fit in my hand. Frame size: 2.75" by 3"

For those interested in masks and African art, more photos of this mask and the companion male mask are on my photostream. Photos of other masks will follow soon (the ones too large for macros).
