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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
