EKUK TRIBAL MASK KWELE GABON. GABON AFRICAN MASK KWALA Located in northern Gabon and on the border of R. Congo, the Kwele sculpt only masks.
These reveal a great formal audacity in a stylization sometimes pushed to the extreme. Embodying the spirits of the ekuk forest, in the form of animal or human traits, they operate as part of the bwete cult and intervene in the ceremonial context of the initiation or funeral.
The abstraction of the facial mask is sublimated by the symmetry of the lines and the balance of the flat surfaces, underlined by the chromatic play that gives depth to the heart-shaped face.
