Guro/Bete Mask (N° 19836)
This African mask has a rounded forehead that is divided vertically by a prominent scarification, a particularity of the region between the Guro and the Bétés. The rounded horns distinguish this example. This mask, whose function remains poorly documented, would symbolize male strength, and perhaps also a powerful notable called "migone". Black satin patina, abrasions. An indigenous restoration is to be noted at the base of one of the horns.

The Bété form a tribe established on the left bank of the Sassandra River in southwestern Côte d'Ivoire. Close to the Kouya and the Niabwa, the workmanship of their masks, as well as their function, offers great similarities.
