The Bambara (Bambara: Bamana or Banmana) are a Mandé people living in Africa, primarily in Mali but also in Guinea, Burkina Faso and Senegal.

They are considered to be amongst the largest Mandé ethnic groups, and are the dominant Mandé group in Mali, with 80% of the population speaking the Bambara language, regardless of ethnicity.

The Bamana people adapted many artistic traditions. Artworks were created both for religious use and to define cultural and religious difference. Bamana artistic traditions include pottery, sculpture, weaving, iron figures, and masks. While the tourist and art market is the main destination of modern Bamana artworks, most artistic traditions had been part of sacred vocations, created as a display of religious beliefs and used in ritual.

Extensive USE WEAR from handling (This is a GOOD thing !)

Some FADING of the cloth and beads.

The Brass or Copper sheeting has greatly discoloured with AGE despite the handling that it has obviously received over an extensive period of time

NO damage that I can see, NO missing parts that I have noticed, NO repairs or resoration
