Stylised and finely woven fibre mask with a deep circular shape and woven into a zoomorphic head: raised narrow ridge with a hoop form on nose, two large eyes with small holes surrounded by circular weaving and woven concentric chevrons. The head tapers to a double knob, fan-shaped head-dress, pierced by a long panel with an undulating cane string as decoration.
