Yoruba Egungun Costume 13.Egungun, or "powers concealed," refers both to the nature of the masked dance and to the spiritual power of the ancestors it honors. Over time an egungun mask is built up with layer upon layer of local and imported cloth. Its many panels celebrate the wealth and status of all family members, living or dead. During a performance individual cloth strips fan out in every direction but the dancer's body is never revealed. (per Smithsonian National Museum of African Art)
