Yaure, Yohoure/ Guro polychrome mask (N° 21790)

The face of this African mask yaure tinted with a slightly abraded polychromy is surmounted by ape-like figures. This anthropo-zoomorphic mask evokes the zamble of the Guros.
The Yaouré are a sub-group of the Akan people present in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. Geographically close to the Baoulé and the Gouros, we can read in yogurt art the influence of these ethnic groups through attention to detail and aesthetics. The masks of African art Yaouré , or Yauré , are divided into two groups that are difficult to differentiate, the je , or dié, sometimes with the addition of colored pigments, and lo , generally with a dark patina, which intervene during funeral ceremonies or any other rite in order to win the favors of the "Yu" spirits.
Masked dancers Yoouré, Yahouré, were not to be seen by women, it was also forbidden to photograph them.
