This is a old beautiful Beaded Bamileke Mask from Cameroon. Elephants are the world's most commanding land creatures, unsurpassed in grandeur and power. Thus while elephant masks, are rare in Africa, they are fully appropriate symbols of important leaders, their respected deputies or messengers. The societies that use these masks act as agents of chief's control and as formal emissaries. Elephant societies that originated in Bamileke and spread elsewhere in the Grasslands consist of three graded ranks attained by wealth. These elephant masks, signifying kingship and wealth, were worn by the powerful members of the Kuosi regulatory society, which included members of royalty, wealthy title holders, and ranking warriors of the Bandjoun kingdom of western Cameroon. This is a beautiful and powerful Elephant Mask of fine quality and would be a fabulous addition to your collection.
