Chiwara Pendant Set
The mythology of the Bamana people of Mali tells the story of an antelope named Chiwara who first taught farming skills to humanity. The headpieces were worn by a Bamana society to represent the mythical agricultural animal during dances held at sowing and harvesting times. At the start of the rainy season, after the fields have been seeded, the Chiwara crests are danced in the evening.
