Traditional masks have always held an important place in Gabonese cultures. Each ethnic group has its own, dedicated to varied ceremonies but all important in the rhythm of life of these populations.

Black masks have a judicial function. The frontal or temporal scarifications in the shape of a nine-point diamond represent their cosmogony and evoke the notion of perfection and wisdom. The central point is the creative principle (God) that gave birth to the four cardinal points (the world) as well as the two primordial couples (humans)
