TRIBAL AFRICAN ART

BAFO (FO)

Cameroon

Bafo people leave in western Cameroon. They make a variety of small and medium size, individual and group human sculptures often with both hands held to the chin. The sculptures may be standing, sitting, or crouching. These sculptures are used in oath-taking ceremonies. There are also figures of birds and bird-headed and other masks, many polychrome.
