Description

Colorful buffalo mask from the Bamileke tribe of Cameroon.
Buffalos, large game animals with massive bodies, were associated with power, and buffalo masks, worn on the top of the head, were an important part of every ritual dance sequence. Their rank, however, was beneath that of the leopard and elephant.
Powerful mask in good condition with a beautifull patina decorated with colorful beads.
