The mask is painted two toned (white and black) and the eyes are bulging and the nose and lips are comical and overly exaggerated. There are painted lines on the face from the botton of the eyes to the chin. There are feathers on the top of the mask. A gourd is hanging from a string round his neck, and there are raffia fronds around the ankles. He is holding a shallow woven basket iin one hand . In the background, children and adults sit beside a thatched building.
