The Fang is the Bantu-speaking ethnic group living in Gabon, Cameroon and Guinea. The "Ngil" was a society (as group of people) of a judicial nature. Its purpose was to search and put out of harm's way every person affected by an evil spirit. This mask has the form of a highly stylized human face which enhances its aesthetic abstraction power. The elongated heart face, the bulged forehead and the ritual scarifications are characteristic of this type of mask from the Ngil society.
