The Do masks, in style and design, recalls thekpelie masks of the Senufo, from which they are derived. Its regular features reflect the Ligbis' ideal of feminine beauty. The cattle horns of this mask used by the Do society, as Rene Bravmann writes, indicate the importance of cattle as sacrificial animals among the Moslem Mande-speaking group. The clan leaders are responsible for holding sacrificial ceremonies at the end of Ramadan and on Aid al Kabir, the tenth day of the last month of the Islamic year.
