Photo of a unique piece of handcraft for the challenge at the African Art and Photography group.

This mask was a personal gift to me from Fon Fombo, the king of Ngyen-Mbo, in North-Eastern Cameroon. I had a great privilige to visit his palace for a traditional dinner while working for Plan International, an independent charity organization. That was truly an unforgettable moment for me!
