Stylistic Mitsoho hand mask from Gabon. Mitsogho masks, when not worn during funeral ceremonies, were kept at the back of the Ebanza house, where the men`s cult met. They were covered in white pigments and were carved with an open mouth, a small triangular nose, and typical slanted eyes set under M-shaped brows.
