|African tribal masks are symbols of African culture and history, representing ideals of physical beauty. They are available in many different sizes and styles, each representing specific purposes in tribal culture. African tribal masks are often used to decorate dens, living rooms, and offices. They are often displayed as wall art or exhibited on shelving units.
Traditional African tribal masks are carved from wood and embellished with gemstones, ivory, natural fibers, and other organic materials. The wood used to craft these masks is sometimes left in its natural state, but is often painted with bright colors. African tribal masks often form the foundation of a collection of various types of African Art.
