Handmade Sun Bobo-Bwa Wooden Mask

  • These large, authentic masks are hand-carved in Burkina Faso, where the masks are used for agricultural ceremonies that promote a healthy harvest.

    The masks' geometric design is used to draw people's attention. When worn at night performances around a fire, the effect is quite dramatic. The handle at the bottom of each mask is where the wearer holds the mask during the ceremony.

    Small measures 12.5"W. Medium measures 15"W. Large measures 19.5"W. Design and size may vary slightly.
