BAMANA MASK 72, Mali

Photographs © Hamill Gallery

BAMANA
Mask 72
16" high (19" on base) x 5" wide x 13.5" deep
$800

Despite its appearance and weathering, this unusual mask shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

Base is included if desired. The metal on the face and the strips over the top are heavier than on the more common Marka masks.

Note the insect damage on the left side and the sections missing from the top crest.
