African Tribal Bobo Bird Shield Mask - Burkina Faso

This traditional ceremonial bird shield mask is typical of the Bobo people of Burkina Faso. Each of these hand carved masks are created to represent bush spirits, or spirits that take animal forms. Animal masks imitate in a very stylized but expressive way, the actions, behavior, or character of the animals that they represent. This bird shield mask personifies fertility and growth and is used in ceremonies to restore balance between earth, sun, and rain.
