African art in Côte d'Ivoire.
The Yaoure are a subgroup of the Akan people present in Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana. Geographically close to the Baule and the Gouros, the art of the Yaoure has been influenced by these ethnic groups.
The masks of African art Yaoure, or Yauré, are divided into two groups difficult to differentiate, the je, sometimes with the addition of colored pigments, and the lo, generally with a dark patina, which were originally used during funeral ceremonies or any other rite to gain the favor of the spirits, the Yu.
Yooure masked dancers, Yahoure, should not be seen by women under penalty of sterility, it was also forbidden to photograph them.
