Liberia National Museum

This mask was worn by a "witch doctor" to tell you your future.
This is a "fertility God" that would be consulted when an women could not have children (it was considered all her fault).
All of these are used for fishing.
The Museum is housed in the original Parliament building built in 1864.
All the young missionaries get a day a week to "prepare for the week (P day)."  We as couples are to do the same but it NEVER happens.  We have to carve out an hour here and there.  All of the couple's took a few "P Hours"  to go the only museum in Liberia.
