This work is an outstanding example of Pwo, a classic Chokwe mask genre that honors founding female ancestors.  Such representations are especially significant given that the Chokwe trace descent through their mothers' lines. Inscribed motifs on the mask's forehead and cheeks are classic graphic designs that aesthetically enhanced a woman's beauty in past generations and were signs of ethnic identity.
