Caption: Bamileke elephant mask dancers in Cameroon. The Bamileke are part of a larger cultural area known collectively as the Cameroon Grasslands. The elephant masks are made of wood, woven raffia, cloth and beads. The masks depict the long trunk and large ears of an elephant, and the masks and their beads symbolise wealth and power.
