Bozo puppet (N° 22280)

Matte polychrome patina, erosions and desication cracks. Height on base: 61 cm.

The Bozo , fishermen and farmers for the most part, live in the northern part of the Bambara country in the interior delta of the Niger and still remain semi-nomadic today, moving their homes according to seasonal floods. Mande-speaking people, they speak Sorogama. Within their group, we distinguish the Sorko or Sorogo, the Hain, and the Tie. Besides their remarkable masks, the Bozo and the Bambara are famous for their puppets of various sizes and frequently articulated, exhibited during the puppet theater Sogow bo > or "the animal comes out", which is organized on the initiative of young people in the villages, mainly in the region of Ségou, and which plays an educational role. The invention of these puppets is attributed to the geniuses of the bush who kidnapped Toboji Centa, a bozo fisherman.
