The investigations carried out by doctor Cremer, and published in 1924 and 1927by H. Labouret, under the title “Les Bobos, la vie sociale, la mentalité mystique, font état de trois groupes ethniques dans la région de la Volta noire présentés dans une certaine confusion : Bobo-Fing, Bobo-Nienégué, et les Bobos-Oulé ( Bobo rouge en Dioula).

This object has a function of accompanying the sacred mask when it is taken out.
It presents the specificity of being able to be worn by a non-forger. This is rarely the case among the Bobo. It represents the hippotragus (Koba antelope) and embodies the figure of DWO, son of Wuro, the creator.

    très beau masque mais :
    1. la barbe est très abîmée sur le côté gauche ce qui aurait pu être signalé au lieu du "en très bon état" !
    2. le certificat d'authenticité promis manque. merci de l'envoyer
