Baga Nimba (D'mba) - Guinea


Represents the abstraction of an ideal female role in society. It is viewed as the vision of woman at her zenith of power, but not as a Goddess or spirit. However it also perceived as the mother of fertility, protector of pregnant women, and it presides over all agricultural ceremonies.

This example is smaller and not intended for ceremonial use, but as a personal or family acknowledgement of respect and devotion.
