Tiriki circumcision mask (engoro), associated with initiation rites for young men. The mask is made for and worn by a particular individual in order to hide their identity, representing existence in a liminal state during the transition from childhood to adulthood. During initiation young men are removed from the community and reside with male elders who teach them knowledge pertaining to adulthood. After initiation such masks are left to decay in the forest.
