The Bamileke live in the Grassland region, in western Cameroon. Bamileke African art is closely linked to royal and societal ceremonies. Large statues, thrones and prestigious objects were designed for kings to assert their power. Traditional masks, for their part, were worn during ceremonies associated with the societies structuring each kingdom.
In Bamileke tribal art, we find for example: statues representing ancestors, beaded statues, mu po fetishes, used during healing or protection rites, decorative plaques from royal palaces, royal seats and thrones, headdresses and ceremonial jewelry, masks of ruling societies, as well as various prestigious objects. The Bamileke are related to the Bamoun.
