This is a great African Carved Wood Spitfire Mask from the Senufo Tribal People of Mali. All Senufo art is made by specialized artisans, which may diminish regional stylistic differences. This type of mask features long horns, round eyes and an open mouth and large teeth. This style of large masks are composites of several animals such as antelopes, buffaloes, crocodiles, warthogs and humans to symbolize power and to recall important myths. They were called Kponungo ("funeral head masks") but outsiders referred to them as "Spitfire" is used by outsiders and they were used for protection ceremonies. A wonderful mask to add to your collection or home.
