- Beautiful mask,Even though this is my area off collecting too, not quite sure on it's origin, the eyes is distinct characteristic of some mossi bird mask, but the overall form and style it seem have gurunsi origin (Gurunsi is a term to describe people in that region and does includes part of mossi and neighboring people, nuna, bwa, lele, winiama, I believed). Judging from it's mixed form I would say it's more likely Gurunsi.Congradulation very nice find. Would love to see more of your collections. Thanks for sharing
