Small Kpéliyée Senoufo Mask (N° 17353)

Great finesse of execution for this mask of the animist society Poro des Senufo, which is undoubtedly the work of a lorhon founder from the class of craftsmen from the Lobi region. These blacksmiths-sculptors worked for different clans, including the Senoufo and Diula.

The Poro Society is an institution that controls political and economic life. His masks honor the elders or appear at funerals. Anthropomorphic masks would mainly drive the spirit of the deceased from his place of residence. The Pélié mask means 'mask that jumps' and combines side fins. The Senoufo are mostly made up of farmers, occasionally hunting. Living in villages run by a chief and a council of elders, they are established between Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, and Burkina Faso.Living in a reserved neighborhood, the sculptor sénufo , whose formation spanned seven years, began with the realization of everyday objects, and then, little by little, sported sculptures of increasing size. Initiation rituals complemented his learning.
