Lega African masks are usually carved in a highly distinctive style, with a heart-shaped concave face, a slightly bulging forehead and an open narrow mouth. The complex system of instruction, initiation, and advancement for both men and women in the Bwami society uses masks and figures to document the various levels of Bwami and to serve as badges validating the initiate?s knowledge of the secrets of Bwami and of their rank. Through time Bwami initiates earn the privilege to wear and display African masks that might be worn on their arms or faces or simply exposed on racks or on the ground indicating their rank before other Bwami society members. For the Lega the ultimate goal is to reach the uppermost level of Bwami where one would be recognized as a Kindi, a leader and also a moral and social authority to be honored with the right to wear or carry certain masks. less
