Product Description

Between the Baule and Yaure tribes to the west, the Malinke to the north and the Bete-We to the south, the Guro people live surrounded by forest and Savannah in the Ivory Coast. Originally the Guro were known as the Kweni until they were violently colonized from 1906 to 1912 and were given the Baule name Guro by the invading French colonials. Guro daily life was dominated by secret societies and by the belief in protective bush spirits called zuzu. The Guro have a very pronounce masking art style in which they portray an animal linkage to most of their polychrome facial coverings. Their well known masks generally are carved from light wood and fashioned with elongated faces with slit eyes. The subject matter varies greatly as does the animal parts which can surmount, surround and or lie beneath the central semi-human face.
