Africa |  Goro Mask.  The Guro people are found in Ivory Coast; their art is closely related to their neighbor's, the Baule's. | Guro masks are usually made of rubber tree wild wood which requires a smoking room so that the wood works thereafter. Guro masks are carved in one piece (horns, tusks and other features are not 'add on' features)
