More African Art from the CMA

Headress from Nigeria.  A little scary and a lot awesome.  This was huge.  Another one I couldn't image having the strength to carry on my head.

Pipe from the Congo

Sculpture from the Congo.  This was really interesting.  The top of his body was wrapped in lizard skin.

"Do the Wave...come on Monkey Man...Do the Wave!!!"  Face masks from Mali...again...really large

Bush Buffalo Mask.  The picture below (courtesy of U of Iowa) shows the complete outfit.

Helmet from the Ivory Coast.

Whistles from the Congo
