Yaure Lomane mask (N° 18174)

Ex French African art collection.
Capped with a bird figure with spread wings, this African mask of the je, polychrome, manifests the talent of the sculptors of African tribal art of the Ivory Coast.
This example named Anoman , Lomane, (bird in Baule) is part of the fourth of the seven je masks that originally danced around the deceased and bent over until it touched him or her for purifying purposes.It also currently appears during celebrations.
The Yaoure are a subgroup of the Akan people present in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. Geographically close to the Baule and the Gouros, one feels the influence of these ethnic groups through the attention to detail and aesthetics in Yaoure art. The masks of African art Yaouré , or Yauré , of which the Baule have similar models, are divided into two groups that are difficult to differentiate, the je , sometimes with the addition of colored pigments, and the lo , generally with a dark patina, which are used during funeral ceremonies or any other rite in order to conciliate the favors of the spirits "Yu". Yooure, Yahoure masked dancers were not to be seen by women, it was also forbidden to photograph them.
