A mask with presence. This nicely presented Eastern Pende giphogo mask features a pair of typically striking, long tampered horns. The triangular-shaped face of the mask displays protruding and rounded eyes, a long slender nose, and on the cheeks, a geometric design of incised scarification markings.
