Mambila wooden masks are typically handcrafted by skilled artisans using local woods, such as iroko or mahogany. Each mask is a unique creation, reflecting the artistic vision and skill of the individual craftsman. The designs of Mambila wooden masks often incorporate elongated faces with exaggerated features, such as elongated eyes, noses, and mouths. The masks can be painted or adorned with materials like cowrie shells, beads, or feathers to enhance their visual appeal. The colors used in the decoration may hold symbolic meaning or reflect the natural elements of the Mambila Plateau.
