ukpuru:

An [Igbo] Okorosie or Okoroshi masquerade with the masquerade character identified as Akatakpuru. The masquerader is wearing a dark ‘fierce’ face mask that is rectangular in shape at the top and rounded at the bottom. The forehead is edged and the eyes are white bulbous circles, rectangular nose and rounded jaw and chin. The mouth is open with pointed teeth. The masquerader is wearing a dark woven cloth and raffia fronds around the waist, seed anklets and holding a stick in one hand. In the background are spectators and trees.

G. I. Jones, 1930s.
