The Baule are one of the Akan peoples. They moved west to the Ivory Coast more than 200 years ago and adpted masking traditions from their neighbors, the Guro, Senufo and Yaure peoples. There are three basic types used in a special dance of rejoicing called Goli, symbolizing the social order. These masks are Kpan, with elaborate coiffures and refined carving; they represent the Senior female in the ceremonies.

Although elegantly carved, these Baule masks show no evidence of age or use and were probably made to be sold.
