Description

The Toma inhabit the high-altitude rain forests in widely-scattered villages in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. This Landai mask would appear during male initiation rites; first summoning young men to the forest for the month-long journey into manhood, then again at the concluding ceremony when the mask symbolically “eats” the boys, leaving them new members of adult society.
