Passport masks were created by almost every ethnic group in West Africa across the 19th and 20th century. Crafted small enough to fit in one’s palm, the owner would carry the mask when travelling. It would be woven into garments or worn as an amulet to keep the wearer physically and spiritually connected to their tribe.
