Geometric motifs adorn tall horns on this dramatic mask. Meticulously carved by Salihu Ibrahim, it comes from the Bobo people of Burkina Faso. Ibrahim paints the mask by hand and rubs it with white clay, while river stones become the shining eyes. Such masks are thought to bring good fortune and are used to celebrate a bountiful harvest.
