Guro Mask Gouro

From the Ivory coast

The horns on a Guro Mask represent spiritual power and can hold magic potions or medicines to protect human lives. With some masks human features are combined with the powerful hornbill or yangaleya bird and on other a combination of human and animal traits can be found, including the hornbill or even imaginary beasts.

The masks of the Guro tribe represents the spirit of Gu, the wife of Zamble a supernatural being. Gu is often depicted as elegant, graceful, serene and beautiful. Sacred Guro masks, delicately crafted and colorful are used and honored during sacrificial gatherings, funerals, and celebrations. The Guro people are led by a chief the Je society is responsible for political, social and juridical affairs and decisions of war and peace, they also appear at funerals of members. The Guro and Yaure tribes are closely related and some scholars think that these two groups inspired the art of the Baule. The Guro tribe is from the Ivory Coast - West Africa.
