Baule/Yaure mask (N° 20685)

This Goli mask presents a face with fine features topped by horns and a sculpted comb, whose seven teeth rise upwards. This African mask is painted a bright red, with the features and scarifications highlighted in black and white. This mask was part of the entertainment festivities and could therefore be seen by women.
These Baule portrait masks, ndoma, which are part of one of the oldest Baule artistic traditions and frequently represent an idealized character, have the particularity of appearing at the end of entertainment dance ceremonies.These are named, depending on the region, bedwo, ngblo, mblo, adjussu, etc.... Each of these masks are distinguished by hairstyles, location and choice of scarification, etc... Also called Gbagba, they personify graceful young girls or men whose valor or qualities of integrity are renowned. The new generations are gradually replacing these dances Mblo called Gbagba in some villages, retaining most of the old conventions, with the Kpan Kpan dance, whose masks raise societal issues or refer to political projects.
