Details

This hand carved sese wood sculpture by Ghanaian artisan Emmanuel Austin Ankude pays homage to a West African tradition. The Bambara people honor a mythological creature that is half-antelope, half-man, who taught humans how to cultivate the soil. A ritual object used to celebrate this myth is called a chi wara, and they are traditionally worn as headdresses and used for dancing in pairs. This chi wara is covered in local clay for a speckled, rustic appearance and stands on a wooden base for easy display.
