So my mom has a thing for old antique furniture and decorations espically african/Indian stuff. Ive always wondered if these masks we have hanging on the wall mean anything, i doubt there anything bad as ive never had any supernatural experiences besides sleep paralysis, but still iam curious

Ive got two of these, so i doubt theyre anything note worthy

These are all trade masks. Made for sale to tourists or for export. They have little to no actual cultural significance. Look up Dogon or Io masks on Google for examples of what legit African tribal masks look like and compare. Note the differences.

Also, some of these look like they are southeast Asian equivalents
>>
Yeah, we've got a few similar looking things hanging in my house.
They're harmless tourist tokens
