Marka Mask

The Marka are considered closely related to the Bamana (Bambara) and are known for their masks with metal embellishments. This is an Ndomo initiate's mask, similar to Bamana examples in usage, but with embossed copper sheathing. It is used in boys' age-grade ceremonies and circumcisions.
