The Igbo art of Africa and their white masks are representations of female spirits. The tribal mask, Igbo Agbogo Mmwo, follows the traditional conventions of youth and beauty. The mask features horizontal incisions in the eyes, a treaded nose, a thin face coated with white, and colorful scarifications and checkered ornaments. The white color of the mask symbolizes ancestral spirits, which are frequently present during funeral rites. The term "mmwo" means "spirit of the dead". The mask wearer is adorned in a vibrant textile suit and a fake chest. A polychrome of white, red, and black colors embellishes this African mask, with some patina chipped away.
