Bwa Masks

Bwa is an african tribe native to Burkina Faso. Bwa people are known to make masks as a representative of Dwo, the creator spirit. They make masks made out of wood to represent the spirits who protect them. Bwa people wear these masks during rituals to tell stories of their encounters with spirirts. Bwa masks are typically painted in red, white and black. Our masks are produced by Bwa refugees living in Ghana.
