Explores social and religious structures of Bamana (Bambara) culture, with sections on each type of artefact used in these contexts, including face, helmet and crest masks, figurative sculpture, puppets, and door-locks.
Bamana The Art of Existence in Mali explores social and religious structures of Bamana culture. Illustrated with field photographs and the artworks used in these contexts, along with new scholarship by African, American and European scholars, this present volume, while modest in light of the wealth on the subject, nonetheless permits us to measure the distance we have come since the pioneering work of Robert Goldwater in 1960.
