Yaure Lomane Mask (N° 18269)

A subgroup of the Akan people present in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana, the Yaouré have produced a sculptural art influenced by the neighbouring Baoulé and Gouros ethnic groups, and vice versa. This African mask belonging to the je society is topped by a stage featuring two ibis drinking face to face. The hair is organized into braids while a collar engraved with triangular patterns borders the face. Polychrome discreet Vivid polychrome laquising, partialmet abrased.
This example, which could be attributed to the group of Anoman , Lomane , (bird) is part of the fourth of the seven masks I 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. . African art masks Yaouré , or Yauré , whose Baoulé have almost similar models, are divided into two groups that are difficult to differentiate, the je , sometimes with the addition of coloured pigments, and the lo, usually with a dark patina, who 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
