This is a wonderful Mossi Yatenga Style Tall Plank Mask from Burkina Faso. This tall, thin mask consists of a white mask, black and brown square mask that matches the length of the horns carved to resemble those of a gazelle and a plank that is covered in black and white pigment. The face is convex, halved by triangular notches, and has circular holes for eyes. The tall, vertically oriented, plank masks are used by the Mossi in the traditional state of Yatenga have, for decades. Masks are owned by a clan descent from the same ancestor and are used in various ceremonies, including initiations, funerals, and annual year-end sacrifices. The masks represent the spirits of familiar animals and a clan’s ancestor spirits or serve as guardians of fruits. Every member of a clan is connected to the animal that their clan’s masks depict. This Mossi plank mask would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
