This is a wonderful and abstract unique Grebo Passport Mask from Liberia. The Grebo live in southeast Liberia at the border with the Ivory Coast, with the Bassa people on their west and the Bete and We to their east in the Ivory Coast. Little is known about the use of masks among the Grebo other than the fact that they are said to have been worn during wars by leaders as a kind of military costume. The masks were worn by the leaders of warfare sent to terrify the enemy. Though not worn for warfare today they are worn at the funeral ceremonies of elders. Grebo masks are characterized by an elongated nose and tubular eyes. Since the masks often have multiple pairs of eyes, they may depict seers. A wonderful item to adorn your home or add to your collection.
