This is a Vintage Buni Plank Mask from Burkina Faso. These masks are believed to possess special powers which are controlled by those who wear them. This mask is plank shaped with a circular face at one end and a crescent moon at the other. The wearer looks through a hole in the mouth. The eyes are based on an owl and the hooked nose comes from the hornbill. The plank section is decorated with geometric patterns which are an essential design element in many African masks and carvings. The designs on this Buni Mask, which is used to celebrate boys' initiation into adulthood, represent information about the myths and morality that the boys must learn before they can be accepted into adult society. A fabulous mask to add your home or collection.
