Item# Kwele

Product Description


Gabon, coastal country in Central Africa, bordered by equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, and Republic of the Congo.

Their masks can easily be identified by their heart shaped form and concave appearance.

There may be only one heart shaped mask. Sometimes a group of three masks might make up this heart shaped form, with the main slightly larger mask in the centre. Each of the three masks has the characteristic heart shaped form.

The Kwele also have a four faced helm mask that is similar to that of their neighbours, the Fang.

The Kwele are situated to the north east of the Kota, north of the Kuyu, and the Fang are their neighbours to the west.
