Bobo mask

360

The ethnic group Bobo is located mainly in Burkina Faso and Mali; it speaks the same language of Mande and Bwa. Bobo’s main resource is agriculture; they cultivate millet, sorghum, and cotton, which is then worked with the frames. This society has no real central government. There are several sub-groups, in which the older members are the decisional council. The art of Bobo offers big masks, which are used during male initiation rites or during the different religious cerimonies dedicated to the god Wuro, creator of the earth and animals.
