Sowei Mask: Spirit Of Sierra Leone

This fascinating display explores some of the many stories that can be told through a single object collected at the end of the 19th century in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

The sowei mask is worn and performed by a member of the Sande Society and the mask wearer bears the same title – sowei – as the highest ranking members of the Society. Sowei masks are works of artistic creativity that connect human and spirit worlds and this mask, with its representation of a Western hat, also challenges perceptions about colonial power.
