Excellent example of an Igbo Crest Mask. The pale colour of the mask refers to ancestral spirits and these masks frequently accompany the deceased during funeral rites.

The Igbo live in the forrest of Southeastern Nigeria. Little is really known about the tribe. Their religion includes two gods, 'chuck' the creator who is considered Omnipotent and the spirit of the earth, 'Ala'.
