have established a reputation for zoomorphic headdresses worn
by Tji-Wara society members known as CHIWARA, or Tji-Wara, masks.
Although all are different, they all display a highly abstract
body, which represents the sun's course from east to west, and
a head with two large horns. BAMBARA members of the Tji-Wara
society wear the headdress while dancing in their fields at sowing
time, hoping to increase the crop yield.
