This is a unique Carved Wood Burnished Bamana Mask from the People of Mali. This is a powerful mask with an elongated and slim face characterized by a long strong nose, lidded eyebrows, and a protruding mouth. A Kore society mask that is used by adult males during the initiation of young men into adult status. All Bamana males advance through various levels of initiation and secret knowledge and the Kore mask appears for only the most senior of men representing their personal struggle to achieve knowledge and wisdom. The symbolism of this mask identifies it as a Kore society-mask combining human and hyena features. The Kore society and the secrets that it holds is the highest of the various initiation groups active among the Bamana of Mali. Kore is the most secretive and the most tasking as men accumulate the secret lore necessary to advance in their quest of spiritual wisdom and social status.
