These ceremonies are associated with the harvesting of yams. Yina is the first of the yam harvest ceremonies. Though strong symbols of maleness permeate the sculptural form, the Yina can be designated either male or female. They have acquired power over time and through use. New carvings are required from time to time; power is not inherent, but develops in the process of carving and painting.This Yina mask and would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
