Two of the framed masks have not been attributed to specific tribes, nor has their age been determined. The second mask is adorned with cowrie shells and is actually a double with the faces side by side. It can appear to be upside down, with the lips as eyes, but the orientation you see is correct. The brass mask is a Senufo funerary mask. The Senufo are distributed along the Ivory Coast and in Mali. Comments or suggestions very much appreciated,
