The Yohure inhabit the central region of the Côte d’Ivoire.

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.

The masks of the Yohure represent human faces often supplemented by animal attributes - a horn bill on this mask. They have an elongated face with a protruding mouth and pierced semi-circular eyes set under a high forehead. An elaborate plaited coiffure parted on each side, often with horns at the end, completes the image, while the outline of the mask is characteristically surrounded by a serrated edge. The function of various types of mask is not rigidly fixed, which leads to their appearance during many ceremonies.  

This is a small decorative mask, yet it has all the attributes of a beautiful Yohure!
