Fang Mask

Fang masks are used in secret ceremonies in Ghana amongst the Fang people. Members of the society wore the masks during the initiation of new members and the persecution of wrongdoers. These masks feature famous African symbols, including the gye nyame symbol, which is a symbol of God's omnipotence. Many also feature a sankofa bird symbol,which symbolizes learning from the past.
