Why We Love This

Tribal mask with inscribed motifs on the mask's forehead. On the cheeks are classic graphic designs that aesthetically enhanced a woman's beauty and were signs of ethnic identity. The central cruciform on the forehead has been interpreted as a cosmogram while the markings on either cheek are described as a solar disc joined by tears. Chokwe masks are often performed at the celebrations that mark the completion of initiation into adulthood.
