Idoma ekwila masquerade, a type of alek-wuafia found in the southern districts. Agila district, Nigeria, 1986. Photo: S. L. Kasfir. In contrast to Idoma carvers who are free artistic agents, the artist-tailors who make these cloth masquerades are denied an artistic identity, working in secret and with numerous restrictions. [Benue, Nigeria].
