Ritual and ceremonial masks are an essential part of the traditional culture of Sub Saharan Africa. The masks have a spiritual and religious meaning. The masks are used in ritual dances and social and religious events. Classic African masks are one of the components of great African art.

Every mask in African art has a specific spiritual meaning. A special status attributed to the artists that create masks to those that near them in ceremonies. These masks were intended to be worn in a ritualistic dance.
