This elaborate and large mask originally stems from the Ekiti area, where annual dance festivals were held with dancers balancing large wooden masks on their heads. The masks generally show off any particular associations with the dancer. This very large headdress mask displays a woman holding a baby, next to her are two twin figures and on the other side is a horse. The rather abstract facial feature at the base is the depiction of an ancestor.
