A Boki head

Nigeria.

The BOKI live in the South of the Cross River State and are head hunters. For ceremonies, they use a kind of crest composed of one or two faces, placed next to each other in a janiform position. The expression is meant to frighten: the mouth is widely open, the teeth are sharp or aggressive and it has protruding and bulging eyes. Made out of wood, hide, hair and fibres.

H 28 cm.
