$220.00 ex GST

Used in the southern villages, the most impressive Bwa masks are the round masks, known asnwatantay. The elders of the Kambi clan in Dossi claim that the masks represent flying spirits and are associated with water. These spirits can take the form of insects that mass around muddy pools after early rains, or of larger birds, including owls and ibis. The key to understanding the mask forms is that these masks are not representational, but embody supernatural forces that act on behalf of the Bwa clans that use the masks.
