Guéré Mask (N° 8521)

Ex Belgian private collection of African art Edouard Bonhomme.
Very similar to the Bété masks, this Guéré mask is very stylized and has elements worn in projection.
The tubular eyes are strongly detached from the face as are the mouth and two small horns. The pointed ears are covered with kaolin. The forehead is rounded. Exhibited during funeral ceremonies, these "detective" masks are intended to point out the culprits.
The Guéré are an ethnic group from a forested region along the western border of Côte d'Ivoire. They are part of a larger Wé tribe that also includes the Wobé ethnic group with whom the Guéré share many customs and beliefs.
