Bamama Chiwara Headdress from Mali. Perhaps 40-60 years. A really fascinating carving from a remote part of the african continent.Each Village has a communal plot which is tended by the young men. The fastest and most skilled farmer is entitled to dance the "Chi-wara" (King of Farming) headdress. Like a trophy, he is entitled to display it until the following years competition.
Condidtion: Wear commensurate with age. Missing a tip of the horn and a ear as visible in photos.
