The Marka are a Mande (Soninke) subgroup whose settlement region extends from the north of the Bamana (southwestern Mali), to the Senegalese border. Along the Niger the Marka use the masks, covered with copper plates, in ceremonies related to fishing and farming. The Bull Mask represents the bull, a symbol of fertility, health and plenty.
