    Abstract:
    The Museum recently acquired two antelope headpieces or Tji Wara of the Bamana people of Mali. These two pieces are among the best known types of African sculpture and are classic examples of African art. The headpieces would have been worn by performers in agricultural ceremonies. The male and female pairs like these appeared at hoeing and ground-clearing occasions and were worn by the hardest workers in honor of the mythical being Tji Wara who taught mankind the secret of agriculture.
