Kpeliye'e mask of the Senufo people. Oval, elongated face, with carved eye slits. There are two large protrusions out either side of the mask, with two handle-like pieces that protrude out through the side of the jaw. The lips extend outward, with three etches on either side of the mouth. There is a fin-like structure that extends out from the center of the top of the mask.
