This piece is primarily used to burn cone incense. Place the cone in the center of the dish and watch as the smoke billows through the antelope body.
This hand sculpted censer is inspired by the zoomorphic masks of the Mossi people, who are centrally located in Burkina Faso. The antelope mask is primarily used to honor deceased members of the community and give thanks to the ancestors. Mossi animal headdresses represent protective spirit animals that communicate with the dead and protect the community from evil forces.
