    Belgian Guy Mercier collection.

    The Ligbi, present in Ivory Coast and Ghana, adopted Islam, but were also influenced by the sculptural art of the Senoufos. This influence is reflected in their own masks, associated with the do society. These masks are traditionally used during religious celebrations, such as the end of Ramadan, marked by sacrificial rituals and songs. Before each event, the masks are often repainted and coated with koro, a mixture of palm oil and ashes from burned foliage.
