The Dogon of Mali, West Africa
According to the national geographic article by Chris Rainier, rituals are an important aspect of Dogon culture, and frequently included masks such as this one.
This piece of Dogon art features a man on a horse.
Perhaps this Dogon mask was used in another important ritual or ceremony.
