Photographer's Note

As much of African masks, this mask probably danced...
It will have been worn, it will have been inhabited the spirits during the ancestors ceremonies.

This superb mask of which I did not note the origin (Fang, can be?) is currently exposed inthe Dapper Museum (75016 Paris); exposition " Gabon, présence des esprits".(20/09/06 to 22/07/07).

This small museum is a jewel,
The library is rich and the tearoom is sympathetic... This dress was worn
