Details

A checkerboard pattern tops this intriguing carving by Salihu Ibrahim. Shaped like a chirping bird, it features a single horn. The design comes from the Bwa tribe of Côte d'Ivoire, and these "flying spirits" are portrayed with geometric shapes as they have no physical form. They bless the families that own the mask and dance with it in public.
