“The Ray of Power” – Ivory Coast
Woman’s mask from the Ligbi, a tribe whose empowered females do most of the harvesting and planting for their people. Her mouth sticks outwards and is painted red, the color of love, and four stripes of red and white decorate her cheeks. Her eyes are open wide and painted white, while her eyebrows are draw in a thin line. Her forehead is encircled with a crown of curved horns, representing strength and power. Down the length of her forehead runs a line of short grooves painted white, a mark of wisdom.
