African Masks - An Inspiration For a Song

I'm doing some research on ancient masks and came across some info about the history of masks in African life over the centuries. It already has me thinking of ways to approach composing a piece of music that might compliment the art of this cultural phenomena. Here's a picture of one such mask that I find to be more than a little scary.
I don't know if I can capture the mood of this but I'll have fun trying, and if it works out it might be part of the next album, "More Halloween, I'm Afraid", slated for a summer 2014 release.
