For the Kota people of Eastern Gabon, the delicate and ghostly Ogooue masks represent incarnations of returned ancestor spirits who come to aid the living and guide the deceased to the hereafter. Traditionally, the Kota and Mukudji peoples would wear these masks during important village festivals. Gabonese artisan Salihu Ibrahim hand-carves each of these stunning replica masks out of local Sese wood. Each finished piece is treated with clay to create a delicate antique patina.


Handcrafted in Gabon, West Africa. Sese wood and white clay. Approximately 18"H x 9 1/2"W x 6 3/4"D.

Gabon is an unlikely Eden where relentless predators stalk prey in lush forests, and primates, who have not yet learned to fear man, live right alongside forest elephants. Against all odds, one visionary African leader and a group of dedicated scientists defied the conventional wisdom that insists oil and logging are the only way to bring prosperity to an impoverished land. Out of the wild they created 13 new national parks—and are now developing an eco-tourism industry to sustain them. Gabon: The Last Eden tells this amazing story with stunning footage— silverback gorillas defending territory, mandrill baboons' faces splashed with day-glow color, and hippos wallowing in the ocean—exploring one of the planet's last true wildernesses and what is being done to save it.
