Zoomorphic mask figures symbolise man's confrontation with his animal traits. Besides the important monkey mask ,,n'gon" there are various animals represented in the Malian communities, such as the lion or the hyena mask ,,suruku" which are being represented in various mixed forms.

This n'gon mask is originated from Bamana Koulikoro, the western part of Mali .The  long and simplistic feature represents an abstract monkey which bares its traditional geometric shaped face, eyes and a prominent elongated chin. Unadorned, this mask originates from the Bambara people of Mali, located in the various districts of Bandiagara, Douentza and the Mopti region.
