Masker - Hout, Pigmenten - Bozo - Mali
2e helft 20e eeuw - Redelijk

Old and rare Bozo mask of Mali.

The Bozo form an ethnic group established in the Niger plain, at the north of the Dogon. They are farmers, herders and fishermen.
They have masks and figurines in bright colours, which are taken out for popular rejoicings related to harvest festivities.

This mask is inspired by the neighbouring Bambara style.
A true traditional piece dating around 1950 or earlier and used in festivities and ceremonies.
Traces of tribal use and age are visable. Some damage at the nose nothing disturbing and giving some charm and part of the old patina.
See the pictures.
The white color can be kaolin and the spots are of a blue-ish black pigment.

HxW: 30 x 18cm

Can be picked up at home or will be schipped securily packed with tracking number
