Bozo Mask (N° 13678)

Bozo polychrome works in the African art of Mali
This ancient African zoomorphic mask honors Faro, water genius. The Bozo, mostly fishermen and farmers, live in the northern part of the Bambara country in the niger's inner delta and remain semi-nomadic today, moving their homes as seasonal floods occur. Mande-speaking people, they speak sorogama. Within their group, we can distinguish the Sorko or Sorogo, the Hain, and the Tie.In addition to their remarkable traditional masks, the Bozo and Bambara are renowned for their puppets of varied size and frequently articulated, exhibited during the theatre of Puppets Sogow bo which organizes itself on the initiative of young people from the villages, mainly in the region of Ségou, and which plays an educational role. The invention of these puppets is attributed to the geniuses of the bush who removed Toboji Centa, a bozo fisherman.
