African Baule Mask in wood from Ivory Coast

This mask was used in rejoicing ceremonies, at the return of hunters, to celebrate successful hunting.

This mask is representative of Baule art, with a lovely balance between the forms and the volumes, as well as finely carved details.

The Baule are one of the most important ethnic groups of Ivory Coast. Their name reflects their origin: according to a legend, Queen Abla Pokou led her people in exodus to the gold mines regions, during the 18th century; she had to sacrifice her son to the god of a river, in order for them to be able to cross it. The people were therefore named the "Bauli", meaning "the son is dead".

Baule artists created many artworks. They have produced some creations that are among the most elegant objects of African art.
