For the Baule, one of the largest ethnic groups in the Ivory Coast, masks serve as an important connection to the spiritual world. Salihu Ibrahim of Ghana creates this Baule-style monkey mask, hand-carved of sese wood and replete with a mane of jute cords. Horizontal lines on the cheeks and forehead represent facial scarification.
