Igbo Mask from Nigeria
Masks are often used for:
- Agrarian rites
- Funerary rites
- Initiatory rites
During these ceremonies, these masks contribute with chants, dances and masked races.

For funerary ceremonies; the opening and the closing of seasonal work:
The exhibition of the mask must remind the creation of the world, that is,
the organisation of the world and society.
The mask reaffirms the presence of myths in daily life.
Regarding initiatory rites and rites related to birth or veneration, the masks have a purely religious function, since the latter must protect men from evil spirits and serve as intermediaries between the Gods and men.
