Late 20th century - Good condition

A beautiful example of a Bamana antelope headdress with young on the back.

Members of the Tji-Wara society wear these headdresses, where the antelope agricultural skill, and derived from, sexual potency imagines.
The headdress is worn during dances at harvest time and at the beginning of the rainy season, to encourage farmers.
The powerful upright horns suggest vigor and alertness.
The curved neck symbolize the passage of the sun across the sky.

  • El penacho de plumas de la máscara no vino suficientemente protegido y 6 de ellas llegaron quebradas; el producto no llegó pues "all in perfect condition", lo cual reduce significativamente su valor

    Plutôt négatif... L'objet est vraiment de petite qualité. Bois très léger et aucune patine. Juste un peu de cirage. Les photos ont beaucoup trop embelli l'objet. Bref, je suis déçu. Dommage.

    Thank you for the feedback, the description of the lot was correct and complete. It was dated the end of the 20th century and the weight and dimensions were mentioned. I also did not talk about patina and the defect was described. Did you not read the description?
