These masks were carved by master carvers in remate villages, skilled in the traditions or sacred rituals. They represent animals of all kinds, in this case a buffalo or ram polychromed in white, black and red, the colours of peace, destruction and blood which embodies life. These masks used in festival rituals belong to the ancestral mythological tradition of the Bwa tribe in Burkina Faso who accentuate the dynamic equilibrium between the natural, the supernatural, and daily life in society. They are used mainly for agricultural or fertility rituals and in modern times they are well known and appreciated for their artistic and geometric abstraction.
