By Abdul Aziz Mohamadu, this handsome mask takes the shape of a bird. 'The Wangara people of Mali use this mask during the Moo – wangara, which celebrates a bumper harvest,' he explains. 'The festival is to hoot at the hunger that they once experienced. The people are very joyous on this occasion because they recount the bad times when they had to go hungry. Looking at their present state of plenty, there is a lot to be happy about.'
