A wonderful Eket Star Mask from the Eket People of Nigeria. Around the mask face is a broad, round rim, common for this type, which ascends towards the center in conical form. This rim displays a star-like relief, which is here dyed black. The triangular interstices between the rays of the â€˜starâ€™ are alternately colored white and reddish-brown. The actual round mask face in the middle has the characteristic Eket form: the forehead is wide, arched and dyed reddish-brown. In contrast, the hairstyle above, worked in high relief, is black, as is the typical tribal triangular scarification mark above the bridge of the nose, and the widely drawn eyebrows. During harvest festivals, members of the Eket secret society dance with these round masks. To give thanks for a good harvest, to thank their ancestors and mother earth, as well as to commemorate important warriors. A fabulous mask to adorn your home or add to your collection.
