This is a wonderful Marka Janus-Double Face Mask from Mali. West African artists of the Marka clans have a distinctive angular style and use brass or copper sheeting to create texture. Masks of this type were used in the N’Tomo initiation mask for young boys during the circumcision ceremony of adolescents, and when circumcised men advanced from one grade to another. Along the Niger River the Marka use the masks in ceremonies related to fishing and farming. The Marka dress their masks in gaily-colored costumes made of cloth; they often appear in pairs, to represent courting of woman.
