BAULE RAM MASKS, Ivory Coast

 

 




Photographs © Tim Hamill

The Baule are one of the Akan peoples. They moved west to the Ivory Coast more than 200 years ago and adopted masking traditions from their neighbors, the Guro, Senufo and Yaure peoples.

Although elegantly made, these Baule ram masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
