Igbo (Ibo)


The Igbo population consists of about 10 million people who are distributed over about 200 villages in the Southwestern Nigeria. The tribe’s oldest and most important persons meet in secret societies which hold great political and social power.
The masks of the Igbo population are characterised by being painted white as this colour symbolises the spiritual world and a large part of the masks are conceived as incarnations of the dead ancestors’ spirits.
