Styles vary, often differing according to the object's intended use within the same context of origin, but broad regional trends are evident; the sculpture is most common among "the peasant groups who settled the Niger and Congo river basin areas" in West Africa. There are relatively few direct depictions of deities, but masks were especially or often made for religious ceremonies; many of them have become "airport art" for tourists today. The African mask had an influence on European modernist art, inspired by its lack of consideration for naturalistic depiction.
