This Chokwe mask is represented of a beautiful girl, expressing her girlhood. These masks were used at initiation ceremonies for young girls into the Chokwe people. The scarification on her forehead has been identified as a remnant of the temporary Christianization of the country long before.  The Chokwe people are from Angola and are well known for their royal figures and masks and use of exaggerated naturalism, which shows in this mask.
