BURA, TERRACOTTA HEADS, Niger

Little is known of the Bura civilization (ca. 3rd - 11th centuries), first discovered in 1975, excavations began in 1983. Most of the objects dug up are terra cotta heads or vessels. There are also some stone heads. These terracotta heads are each professionally mounted on square black iron bases, except for Nos. 11 & 12 which are free standing.
