The Kabongo mask was used in ceremonies at the end of initiation. Its conical shaped eyes with small holes resemble those of a chameleon, sybolizing the ability to see and read the invisible, and with the ability of a chameleon to see forwards and backwards it is believed that they can see the past and the future.
