Face Mask. Yaure. Ivory Coast. Africa

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures


For you serious collectors of the Yaure, you know that it is sometimes difficult to identify them due to the fact that identification varies from village to village and clan to clan.  But there is one thing that reesotericstuff.coms constant:  the face.  In the words of the renowned collector Alain-Michel Boyer:  “This immutable face, seemingly withdrawn within its own world of perfection and unfathomable secrets, clearly evokes the twofold notion of exterior physical beauty and interior moral superiority, which often form a pair in Yaure thinking.”

This is a great mask for the new or seasoned collector.
