The Yohure inhabit the central region of the Ivory Coast.
The Yohure possess a strong sense of identity and have evolved a refined art. The Yohure decorate different everyday objects with figurative representations, but first of all their beautiful masks reveal their artistic abilities.
Yohure masks have an elongated face with a protruding mouth and pierced semi-circular eyes set under a high forehead.
The function of various types of mask is not rigidly fixed, which leads to their appearance during many ceremonies.
This is a decorative mask.
