Description
The Guro people of Africas Ivory Coast are renowned for their rich mask and sculpture traditions, creating objects of joyful and sublime beauty for a variety of social and spiritual ceremonies. Art ethnologist Eberhard Fischer has spent decades researching the Guro traditions and documenting their way of life, and in this large book—illustrated with 383 color and 188 black and white photographs—he presents hundreds of masks and woodcarvings, as well as their makers and lively scenes of Guro dances. Fischer also interviews religious leaders, carvers, weavers, dancers, and cult masters.
