Wooden mask. The coiffure consists of four broad lobes surmounted by a boss and four small horns [one missing]; at the bases of the lobes are four wooden rosettes. The face is, broadly, of the type characteristic of Bondo masks; the  broad "neck rings" do not in this case completely surround the neck. The usual black-dyed raphia fringe is tied to the base of the mask. All these Bondo masks are made to enclose completely the head and neck of the wearer.
