This highly artistic Pende Giwoyo mask is considered one of the oldest and senior masks that originated in Angola. These masks were used during initiations and funerals, danced in the bush on the borders of the village. The headpiece is worn angled down the forehead of the dancer so it may be viewed in profile.
