The village baoule, was the combination of his old skill with the new learning, which resulted in a art technically superior and aesthetics balanced, being sophisticated and diverse stylistically. In the masks, we can see how the eyebrows are joined, giving a feeling of total sadness in their eyes, and not only in its look, but also with their mouths, and give us displays of sadness or agony, equipped with a magic melancholy. The baoule believe that before being born, already exist in a spiritual world, where each one has a companion. Sometimes that partner spirit get jealous of your partner's earthly and cause a civil discord. When this happens, a figure that represents the companion of the other world are carved, and gives attention to earthly to relieve the jealousy. The faces are idealized, are introspective, with the front extended, slim nose and eyes, low, are chosen for their beauty, and have no meaning iconographic. Denote personal beauty, refinement and the desire to give pleasure to those who observe them.
