While originating from the African continent, this chi wara is likely not created by the tribe who invented the design. The tribal attribution indicates the origin of the design, not the object.
This Chi Wara has a metal collar over the joint between the head and body pieces. The front projection (was possibly a horn) shows small, old, non-active powder post beetle holes. The basketry is covered with woven cloth (some tucked under) and is adorned with cowrie shells.
