BACKGROUND
The Guro people live in the interior part of the country, surrounded by savannah and forest. Village life is regulated by a council of elders, representing each main family, and by secret societies. The Guro farm predominantly cotton, coffee and cocoa – the men clear the field and the women plant. Guro art is characteristically elegant. Their artistic output is dominated by masks. This bushbuck antelope mask is one of the three Yu masks found among the Northern Guro. The term Yu can designate the association, all its objects, or one mask. Occasionally the trinity consisting of Zauli, a horned mask with distended cheeks, Zamble, and its daughter, Gu, is reduced to a Zamble-Gu pair. The Zauli mask performs at some special occasions. Masks of this type are usually worn by two dancers, one mask representing the male, the other the female. They are used to detect and extinguish evil forces.

Painter Fred Uhlman words - Most of the artists I admired, Picasso, Modigliani, Deraini, to mention only a few, had collected African art and had been profoundly influenced by it. Shortly afterwards I bought the Baule Fetish and the Baule bobbin which are still two of the finest pieces in my collection. It is easy to see why I bought them and why from that moment I have never stopped collecting. The head of the bobbin or heddle - pulley which is after all only a functional object for the purpose of weaving seemed to me then and today as beautiful as a Greek goddess. The fetish moved me as deeply as the bobbin by its silent tragic dignity and its air of profound meditation. GUARANTEE
