Why We Love This

Wooden Baule tribal mask with a beard, halo-crown and textured forehead. Human masks in the Baule tradition are crafted and used by men to make contact with Gu, ruler of the world. The eyes look down as "a sign of respect" In African culture. This is a very old mask, not be confused with those made today.
