This lantern is loosely based on Walu and Kanaga masks carved in wood by the Dogn people of Mali. Dogon artwork is some of my favorite work to draw inspiration from because of the overlap between geometric form and mythic meaning. The wall mount is welded to the gong so that it can be installed with four included lag screws.
