GUERE, "WAR" MASKS, Liberia

The Guere, neighbors of the Dan, make masks for similar purposes but usually of a form that is more ugly or scary than Dan masks. They are used for rituals, education and social control and to appear frightening to enemies.

Despite their appearance most of these Guere masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
