A Chiwara (also Chi wara, Ci Wara, or Tyi Wara;) is a ritual object representing an antelope, used by the Bambara ethnic group in Mali. The Chiwara initiation society uses Chiwara masks, as well as dances and rituals associated primarily with agriculture, to teach young Bamana men social values as well as agricultural techniques.
Very nice age related patina.
From a Belgian privat collection, region Brussels.
Good condition with some cracks, repairs on the horns and misses 1 ear. Have a good look at the pictures.
