Notes: The Ekpeye, once classified as an Igbo-related group on the southern fringes of Igboland, provide a case study of the complexities of borderland cultures and shared/borrowed masking traditions. Picton looks specifically at three masking traditions found among the Ekpeye--Egbukere, Aarungu, Owu. Among these, the Egbukere is the major one, distinctive for the horizontal fish-shaped headdresses and other animal representations. The Aarungu and the Owu masquerades exhibit a wide range of forms and imagery, human and animal; the sheer number and variety of masks photographed by Picton in 1966 attest to flourishing artistic traditions, which were open to innovation and free expression. This was in 1966; what has happened in the past two decades is unknown.
