Product remarks

  • The unique item shown on the image is the exact item you will receive.
  • These head dress masks representing a hippopotamus emerging from the waters were originally thought to originate from the Batcham area only (hence the name)but they have since frequently been found in all the Bamileke regions of Cameroon. The masks were held up high and used only at royal functions of the local Fon (king) mainly for enthronement and burial purposes. New masks were created with the succession of each new Fon. We have heard locals refer to the masks as chairs the assumption is that the old masks originally created for the previous kind were after his departure utilised as chairs.
