In a special dance of rejoicing called Goli, symbolizing the social order, this mask, Kplekple, represents the junior male. It is among the most abstract of traditional African masks.

Most of our Baule Goli masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.

We recommend Baule: African Art Western Eyes by Susan M. Vogel (Yale).
