Chi wara means “laboring wild animal” in Bambara and is a symbol used as a ritual object by the Bamana people in Mali. According to folklore, a half-antelope half-man creature came down from the sky and introduced farming to the Bamana. In honor of Chi wara, the Bamana carve elaborate headdresses in the form of a stylized antelope. Worn during ceremonial dances, the ritual symbol is used to promote growth of the millet crop and is believed to represent fertility, reproduction and honor to the ancestors.
