Bi Nka Bi African Mask

African masks, which can be traced back to Paleolithic times, have great cultural importance and are highly sought after by both museums and art collectors. Bearing religious, ceremonial, and cultural significance, African masks typically depict animal and human characteristics and are made from a variety of woods and materials. African masks often represent a spirit and are worn by a chosen dancer during various celebrations. Connecting the living with the dead, it is believed that the spirits of the ancestors possess the wearer of the African masks. Even today, African masks play a very important and deep role in telling the history of many African people and their ancestors.

The Bi Nka Bi African Mask translates to mean "bite not one another". This teaching mask is often placed within schools and homes in areas of West Africa as it is a symbol of peace and harmony.

The Bi Nka Bi African Mask is delicately hand carved from African Sese wood & detailed to perfection. A deep mansion polish is brought to life with the use of metallic inlays and a whimisical design.
