King'sTribal Mask Cameroon

Ritual and ceremonial masks are an essential feature of the traditional culture of the peoples of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Another classic royal piece from Cameroon, a country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the west; Chad to the northeast; the Central African Republic to the east; and Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and the Republic of the Congo to the south. Cameroon's coastline lies on the Bight of Bonny, part of the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Cameroon is home to more than 1738 different linguistic groups. French and English are the official languages. The country is often referred to as "Africa in miniature" for its geological and cultural diversity. Natural features include beaches, deserts, mountains, rain forests, and savannas.

This piece has historical significance, and was used in a royal ceremony, a must have!
