Bobo Butterfly Mask from Burkina Faso
This very large Butterfly mask is from the Bobo people in Burkina Faso. It
was carved from one large piece of wood with a horn added to the front and
then accented in rich natural earth colors using beautiful geometric
patterns, front and back. Butterflies are an indication of a very
successful crop, so this mask might be used in a dance to assure a good
crop. You will receive the one shown below.
