This is a wonderful and beautiful Bedu mask from the Nafana people of Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Bedu masks belonged to one of the many secret societies, for which membership typically required initiation. During the initiation, young boys had to endure physical tests and an apprenticeship in secret knowledge of the supernatural. Bedu is really a reference to a mythical wild animal. Legend states the Bedu was discovered in the bush by a father who had taken his sick child on a journey in search of medicinal roots. This Bedu mask is beautiful in color and abstract design with the outstanding craftsmanship of the Nafana carvers. This would be wonderful piece of African Art to display in your home.
