BAULE BO NUN AMUIN MASK 10
BAULE, BO NUN AMUIN MASK 10, wood and pigment, 40",
$2000, SOLD, Ivory Coast
The Baule are one of the Akan peoples. They moved
west to the Ivory Coast more than 200 years ago and adopted masking traditions
from their neighbors, the Guro, Senufo and Yaure peoples.
Bo nun amuin, the sacred and fearsome bushcow/antelope men's masks,
kept in the bush and hidden from women and children, show the serious and
powerful potential of Baule spirits.
This exceptional four eyed mask might not be a standard Bo
nun amuin. It has a glass disc on one of the forward looking eyes, the
other has been lost.
