Bamana Female Statue

The Bamana Tribe are from Mali. Statues, on the other hand, are mostly dedicated to the fertility principle, gwan. Women looking for children would offer sacrifices at the shrines of gwan sculptures. The gwan statues usually come in groups and of different sizes. A typical gwan statue collection will feature a central mother-and-child statue, the father and other adult male and female figures. Gwan statues are enshrined and taken out only during annual ceremonies.
