      Hi, I have got this four faced Mende helmet, it was one of two the same / similar, they came with 10 Mende Bundu's we got from a village in the north of Sierra Leone, unfortunately I didn't get any information on these four faced masks, I am aware that the Bundu's are made single and double faced but never ever seen a four faced one! Does anyone have a clue on why a four faced helmet would be made and for which ceremony / purpose? any information would be gladly received.
      Kind regards
      Karl
