Huge and Impressive BOBO BWA Buffalo mask - Burkina Faso
A helmet mask in the shape of a buffalo head with round horns. Made of light-colored wood, the surfaces of the arched relief are dyed black, white and red. Carved in the style of the Bobo Bwa (their neighbors, the Gurunsi and Nuna tribes, have very similar masks). These ‘buffalo masks’ are tied to a full-body costume and worn in a slanted position on the head.
