Your mask has the characteristics of N'golo masks (name of the masks) which are used by the MARKA ethno-group in Mali.

I recently purchased what was told to me to be a Nigerian Ceremonial
mask circa 1930's - 1940's. I was thoroughly intrigued by the mask, so
much so, that I had to take it home with me.
Having no general knowledge of masks, in fact this is my first mask,
I'm looking for any assistance in finding the history of this mask. Is
it Nigerian? In what ceremony would it be involved? What significance
does the mask have?....etc......etc.
Mind you, whether or not the description of the mask originally
given to me is valid or not, I'm keeping the mask. It's saying
something to me, but I don't know what.....yet. For photos, look for
the album listed as "grrrrila101".
