Goli Mask - Baule People, Ivory Coast

$95.00
The very characteristic, round-shaped "lunar" goli is surmounted by two horns. Celebrating peace and joy, the Baule would sing, dance & drink palm wine.
The Goli would be used on the occasion of the new harvest, at the visit of dignitaries, or at the funerals of notables.
Four pairs of danced masks appear in the Goli procession, & this disk mask represents Kple Kple, the young male adolescents. It symbolizes both sun & buffalo features.
The mask was also danced through the village to avert evil. It is a humorous mask, which imitates a mischievious, disobedient child.
