BAULE GOLI MASK 9, Ivory Coast

Despite its appearance, this mask shows no evidence of age or use and was probably made to be sold.

Although this Baule Goli mask shows no evidence of use, someone went to the trouble not only of fashioning round wooden pegs to fill the ninety plus holes on the front and back of the mask, but to size the pegs so fastidiously that they are hardly visible (See detail pictures below).
