A beautiful specimen of a Bamana antelope headdress, very decorative.
Members of the Tji Wara society wear these headdress representing the farming abilities of the antelope as well as its sexual potency.
The headdress is worn for the dances during the harvest and at the beginning of the rainy season to encourage the farmers.
The powerful erect horns suggest strength and alertness.
The openwork zigzag patterns on the bent neck symbolize the tunnel of the sun alongside heaven.
Dimensions: 110 cm x 34 cm.
