Masks of Leaves and Wood: The Bwa People of Burkina Faso
 

African masks in performance in the Bwa village of Boni, Burkina Faso. The Bwa make both masks of leaves, and wooden masks. The wooden masks are covered with red, white and black graphic patterns, and are used in funerals and annual festivals. The leaf masks represent the God of springtime, and perform only for one day, after which they are destroyed.
