The mask is not actually worn, but is rather attached to a pole, covered in brightly colored fabrics, and is animated as a marionette. "It" sings songs, teaches children folklore, morals, traditions and history.
A large variety of sculpted characters are used in the puppet theatre of Mali. They perform in public festivals shared by a young adults from the Bambara, Marka & Bozo peoples.
This was collected in the early '90's by ourselves in Mali, and shows much age. It is probably part of a marionette.
