Bird figures are among the many art forms associated with Poro, a society of initiated Senufo men. In some Senufo villages, the bird sculptures are kept in the sacred grove of Poro, where they stand guard protecting the members. During initiations and some funeral rituals, they are carried in processions and are sometimes worn on the head in dramatic displays of strength. Senufo bird figures refer to both the physical and intellectual aspects of life, which together assure the continuation of the community.
