Depictions of humans in the ceremonial masks of the Bambara people are rare. The majority of their masks were carved to pay homage to the antelope, whose legendary spirit taught them to farm. Influences from that tradition are visible in the graceful curves of this helmet mask. The contrast between weathered browns and bone whites pattern and accentuate the balanced form of this sculptural object.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
