    Former Guy Mercier African art collection.

    In the western region of Côte d'Ivoire, the Bété use masks whose style is influenced by the gla glaé mask society of the Wobé and Guéré peoples, who are part of the Krou cultural group. These traditions were transmitted to them by the Nyabwa. Although these masks have a warrior origin, they are also involved in conflict resolution and are considered sacred. They are worn with amulets to protect the wearer against witchcraft. They are made available to the chief in order to strengthen his authority through customary justice.
