This Bamana ritual sculpture Chiwara, representing the male gender by the presence of crooked horns, is originally from the Bamana (or Bambara) tribe in Mali, representing an antelope figure, who represents the spirit that taught human beings the fundamentals of agriculture.

The Chiwara initiation society uses Chiwaras, in dances and rituals associated mainly with agriculture, to teach young Bamana men social values as well as agricultural techniques.

The antelope for the Bamana People is the solar symbol of communication between man and the cosmos.

It is made of carved and carved wood, with the presence of vegetable fiber.
