Goat Mask, Africa

Goat Mask, Africa century Côte d'Ivoire, central Culture: Guro or Baule. (it is very reminiscent of the Egyptian God Innubis, very curious).

Just one of the many lovely images from the publication Parures africaines (www.amazon.fr/...) published in 1956. {Although no details provided by Flickr user, Old Chum, given the masks, I would think that this photo was taken in Burkina Faso}

Bwa masqueraders of Burkina Faso (from "Parures Africaines" by Denise Paulme and Jacques Brosse).
