Koulango Bouna mask of the Do


Mask belonging to the Dô society for which the clan leaders organize the sacrifices at the end of Ramadan. This African mask representing a buffalo is called Singinkuru-Ayna. Mask linked to the image of the "Old Muslim" Horingyo. Certain Islamized ethnic groups, such as the Ligbi (close to the Senoufo) have preserved some animist traditions through the Dô society which is perhaps a survival of the Poro practiced among the Senoufo.
Small repair very slightly visible on the cap. Carried out by a highly specialized workshop.

Piece collected in the region of Bogofa, south of the Comoé National Park.
Object that danced until the 1990s since the festivities for which it is intended still take place today.
