Baule mask also known as Goli masks originate from West African countries that include Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire. Depictions of their masks are known to be lifelike and closely resemble their subjects compared to other African countries that typically take a more abstract approach to their masks. Baule masks are typically used in tribal dances during harvest festivals, in processions to honor guests and at funerals of highly acknowledged members.
