This specific drawer pull is inspired by Fang mask from Gabon. Used by the ëNGILí society, which acted as a ěpoliceî power to ensure the adherence of the community to the law and to re- establish social order. The elegantly shaped design of eyebrows and nose, gracefully articulate the face. Many 20th century modern artists were greatly influenced by the shape and design of these elongated masks. The Ngil could travel from village to village without danger because its role as a peace-keeper was recognized. They combatted evil practices and settled disputes between clans and rivals.
