4th Grade Explores African Art - By Casey J., Brendan G.
This is a mask. It was used for ceremonies, and to scare people and animals away.
It's also a combination of animals. For example, the front horns are from a warthog,
and the teeth are from an alligator. It's very cool.
We looked at a mask of a bird in a nest, and another of a baboon in the left corner.
We did not get to wear it or touch it, but we visualized it. It was very cool.
