Malian Yellow River Fish Sculpture

Swahili Modern

OAK36C-2

  • The Bozo people of Mali are known as "masters of the river", and their culture and artwork centers around their interaction with the Niger River.

    These large fish sculptures pay tribute to the handcrafted animal puppets and masks that are used in the Sogo Ba celebration, where young men in elaborate costumes use dance to entertain and teach.

    This vintage fish sculpture is one-of-a-kind. Intricate hand-painted details and rustic, hand-carved wood make the fish a unique work of art. Mount for wall display or display on a stand; stand is included.
