About The Bobo Moon Mask from Burkina Faso

This is an agricultural mask worn to bring rain made by the Bobo tribe located in West Africa.

"Burkina Faso is a landlocked country in West Africa measuring about 106,000 square miles in area.  Surrounded by six countries, Mali to the north, Niger to the east, Benin to the southeast, Togo and Ghana to the south and Ivory Coast to the southwest, its capital is Ouagadougou.  As of 2014, its population was estimated at just over 17.3 million citizens.

Formerly called the Republic of Upper Volta, the country was renamed "Burkina Faso" on 4 August 1984 by the then President Thomas Sankara.
