A ritual instrument used in the fourth iniatic section of the Koré des Bamana society, Bambara, this cane is named, like the horse mask, Kore Duga or the vautour du Kore. The name of the mask refers to the satirical behaviour of the dancer-buffoon who rides the stick during his performance. It has various objects associated with the knowledge provided by the Koré, the last initiation society of the Bamana. The handle sculpted in the shape of a horse's head was then plated with metal sheets. A decorative linear nailing attaches the ornaments to the wood. The hair also simulates a hair. The lower end is sheathed with leather and ends in a fibre top. Dark brownpatine.
