African Tribal Masks are used for specific events or gatherings, such as funerals or ceremonies. Although African masks are commonly seen throughout Africa, each African society has their own unique mask that symbolize themselves and their culture.

Most African societies have no extensive written culture so masked dances serve to teach people right from wrong.  Masks are also carved to represent a culture's ideal of feminine beauty. Animal masks connect people with the spirit world that traditional African beliefs say inhabit the forests and open savannas.
