2nd half of the 20th century - Good condition

The Ciwara is composed of the Bamanan words Ci = Labour, and Wara = Lion, the sculpted Ciwara is not a mask but a crest which is worn on top of the head thanks to a little reed hat. Among the BAMANA, the Ciwara, after several stages of initiation, rewards the greatest workers in all the fields of the active life. Representing the legendary antelope of the BAMBARA, the Ciwara is therefore the symbol of courage, abnegation, wisdom. Like the chimera, the dragon, the mermaid or the Medusa, the Ciwara became a widespread theme, an exuberant symbol, which exists in the life of all the people curious of Africa. The Ciwara in carved, engraved wood with a patina, provided a worldwide fame to the BAMANA art of Mali by celebrating the union between the sun and the earth by stimulating the hard labour of young cultivators.
