Mask Yaouré, Yohoure, Lomane (N° 17252)

Wearing a bird figure with outstretched wings, this African mask from je has a hair divided into three evoking wealth. The subtle pattern of the face, the brilliant lacquered patina, reveal the talent of African tribal art sculptors from Côte d'Ivoire. This copy, named Anoman , Lomane , (bird in baoulé) is part of the fourth of the seven masks je which originally danced around the deceased and leaned to the touch for a purifying purpose. He also appears at the moment in the course of rejoicing.
The Yaouré are a subgroup of the Akan People present in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. Geographically close to the Baoulé and the Gouros, we feel in yaouré art the influence of these ethnic groups through attention to detail and aesthetics. The masks of African art Yaouré, or Yauré , of which the Baoulé have similar models, are divided into two groups difficult to differentiate, the je , sometimes with the addition of colored pigments, and the lo, usually with a dark patina, which intervene during funeral ceremonies or any other rite in order to reconcile the favors of the spirits. Mr. Yu. The masked dancers Yoouré, Yahouré, were not to be seen women, it was also forbidden to photograph them.
