This is wonderful Carved Wood Ntomo Mask from the Bamana Tribal People of Mali. Ntomo is an initiation association joined by boys several years before their circumcision and initiation into adulthood. Before the beginning of their formal education, young boys learn the rudiments of social behavior. The number of horns make reference to specific characteristics of males (three or six horns) or females (four or eight horns) and the androgynous (two, five or seven). Some of its other features have also been symbolically interpreted, such as the small mouth indicates the value of silence or of thinking before speaking and the long nose expresses the metaphorical capacity to smell the good and bad qualities in people. Ntomo maskers wear simple cotton costumes, sometimes with raffia attached, and they test one another by striking each other with sticks to develop forbearance in future life. This would a fabulous addition to your home or collection.
