Opening weekend shot from the African Gallery at the North Carolina Museum of Art, in Raleigh North Carolina. Shot with Panasonic Lumix LX3. According to museum docent Christine Sadel:
"The Egungun costume is used yearly in villages to honor their dead relatives, so they can see out through a woven pane in the front and this one has shells covering the face. Each year the family adds fabric layers and when the person inside wears the costume, he spins around making the fabric fly out. The one on display is one of three that the museum owns and since they are fabric they rotate them to make them last longer."
