These masks are usually exhibited at the beginning of the procession of the Gbagba, to “heat-up” the space before the arrival of more important dance masks.
This traditional thin and linear African mask, close to a drawing, with a light-coloured patina and a three-lobed hairdo, reminds Yaure art. The Baule present many masks, among which the moon or lunar Mask, on which we have some trouble finding precise documentation.
The “goli” of a rounded shape, “lunar”, very characteristic, is topped by two horns. Celebrating peace and joy, people sang, danced and drank palm wine. During the procession, this mask preceded the four groups of dancers and represented young teens. It appeared on the occasion of the new harvest, the visit of dignitaries or for the funerals of notables.
