Bete mask - SOLD OUT
Originally, the mask, called grè en Bété is a traditional entity from the mountainous west. The glé comes from the word gla of the Guere ethnic group. It has undergone transformations throughout its course.
Bété masks generally come out during happy or unhappy events.
As there are no special traditional festivals, masks are requested during celebrations or mourning.
African Bété masks also come out during days of large groupings, especially during days of community marches.
Superb patina and traces of portage. The growths are present and in good condition.
