This ancestral pwo or mwana mask pwo, with a hair line made of braided fiber fabric, has beautiful and unusual scarification patterns on the forehead and face, originating in Angola. Pwo means femininity and an elderly ancestral female associated with fertility. The cross shape on the forehead, known as “cingelyengelye”, is an early Portuguese influence.

It is made of carved wood and vegetable fiber.
