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 tip of the left ear is broken off and the basketry has lost its covering. There is an area of wood loss on the left side of the face and a crack, now stable, at the back end where the two horns join.
