Tribe: Bamana
Country: Mali
Ritual: Unknown
Name: Unknown
 
Materials: Wood
 
Provenance: Coll. Segou Region, Mali by Andrew Turley 2007
 
Comments: Although this mask shows significant wear and age (an opinion tentatively shared Samuel Sidibe, Director of the National Museum, Mali) I was not able to reference it through the National Museum or subsequent written material. Based on external erosion and internal patination age is estimated circa 1960

I have been unable to find any visual reference for this mask. Any advice or opinion would be greatly appreciated. Please email andrew@suagacollection.com
