The Kwele people occupy a huge area of forested land that stretches across the borders of Gabon, Cameroon and the Congo. Representing benevolent forest spirits, they have zoomorphic or anthropomorphic traits, or a combination of two.
The faces are usually painted in white kaolin earth, a pigment associated by the Kwele with light and clarity, the two essential factors in the fight against evil.
