Lega masks
Two main types of Lega masks appear in the ceremonies and rites:
A Lega mask worn on the face, in heart shape, protruding eyes or in coffee bean, a straight and fine nose and a small mouth placed at the edge of a pointed chin. This mask is often covered with white pigments. This mask is used during initiation rites of the Bwami society.
A Lega mask carried on the arm which has the same stylistic features that the previous but which is smaller in size. It is used to indicate the rank of the initiator within the Bwami society. Indeed this Lega is not a secret society each indicates his rank.
These two Lega masks are hooked on the fences of the villages during periods of initiation.
Finally there is an ivory mask that is worn by the highest rank of the Bwami society
