Senoufo slingshot (N° 20052)

African slingshot with a Senufo mask motif. Very nice patina of use golden brown.
br>Representations of hybrid beings, the zoomorphic African masks of the Senufo are worn by members of the Poro society, an institution that controls political and economic life. Their function is to honor elders or appear at funerals, hence their name, poniugo, "funeral head." Living in a reserved neighborhood, the senufo sculptor, whose training lasted seven years,began by making everyday objects, and then, gradually, sported sculptures of increasing size. Initiatory rituals completed his training. The piece features decorative motifs in red and white dots.
