Apart from the well-known bushcow masks, the Tabwa have also, though in a small number, produced other types of masks, among which is the present example. Striking features here are the large orbits, the long, slender nose, the huge triangular ears and the simian mouth. The double line of small squares spared out on the surface so typical of figured Tabwa sculpture is also present on the forehead and part of the nose, a very much characteristic and distinctive tribal mark that makes Tabwa pieces easily identifiable. The colours are black, red and white.
