The Attié, also called Akyé, are located in the north of the Grand Bassam lagoon in Ivory Coast. Attié African art includes statues with geometric shapes, muscular limbs, and intricate headdresses. Aesthetics and beauty, particularly the female figure, have great importance in Attié artistic expression. There are also celebrations centered around the selection of the most beautiful woman in the village, particularly when she has been able to retain all her beauty despite her pregnancies.
On the other hand, the masks of the lagoon peoples are extremely rare, rudimentary in appearance and their role is very poorly detailed.
