Description

The Bwa mask has been appreciated by artists and collectors alike.

A speciality of the peoples who live in the southern parts of their territory, Bwa masks embody a range of protective spirits if nature, from bush spirits to butterflies to the sun itself. Bwa masks are often large in scale, two dimensional, and adorned with colourful patina. They are performed at many kinds of ceremonies and social events to celebrate.

The  highly abstracted and geometric forms of the Bwa and Bobo played an important inspirational role in the development of Western art movements of the early 20th century.
