Oron mask

A quite surprising Oron tribe mask when it comes to detailed decoration. If you take a first look on it it might give you the impression the mask is from an Asian culture. But it is very African indeed. The Oron live in the Akwa Ibom state in the south of Nigeria and besides beautiful bronzes they also make these remarkable wooden masks. The mask is 57 cm in height.
