Yoruba Magbo Helmet Mask, Nigeria.
The Oro association is responsible for enforcing fines and penalties and carrying out punishments. The Oro uses masks of this type during annual festivals. Maskers are also involved in burial procedures for everyone, no matter the status of the deceased. The many figures on top of the mask, including a prisoner, a preacher, a musician and a soldier indicate that Oro activities involve the whole community.
