Africa | Masquerader performing the mask Gbetu, Monrovia, Liberia. ca. 1959 | ©Eliot Elisofon. || This mask closely resembles the masks of the Sande society except that it is surmounted by a long ringed neck with a small head at the top. Its costume consists of three skirts of raffia worn around the waist, chest and neck, which looks somewhat like a haystack without arms and legs. The movements of the Gbetu are energetic and acrobatic as it proceed with great swishing motions.
