Markha Face Mask (N° 21843)

A narrow face with a protruding mouth and a rectangular ridge for the nose, a forehead and a headdress forming a helmet, this copper-plated mask is a specific feature of marka sculptures. Matte smooth patina.
In African art, the Marka , Maraka in Bamana, Warka , or Sarakolé, are Muslim city dwellers of Soninke origin, established in the south of Niger, scattered since the end of the Ghana empire in Mali, Mauritania and Senegal . They now speak Bamana and have adopted much of the Bambara traditions, such as Ntomo and Koré , initiation societies that used masks during their ceremonies. The African art sculptors Bambara and Marka are part of the Numuw , who are not linked to an ethnic group and are free to settle wherever they wish.
