African Wood Mask The African art of the Guro is distinguished by extreme refinement. The Baule and Guro styles are difficult to separate. The African Guro style, however, has one or two distinguishing marks: the African Guro face of the human mask is usually longish while the forehead and bridge of the nose form an elegant S-shaped profile. The tattoo pattern cut in relief on the forehead and cheeks is a repetition of the short protruding tattoo marks on the men's faces, and another characteristic of many African Guro masks is the broad, wooden mask collar that serves as a fixture for the raffia cloak. There are polychrome, as well as black and brown polished masks. There is a much stronger tendency than with the Baule to add animal features to the human face - elephant's ears, or a superstructure in the shape of a cockerel's or other bird's head. The hairdo is often carved in elaborate geometrical patterns, surmounted by horns or a totem animal. In some, the nose forms an animal-like beak. Rather well known is the zamble mask combining the features of a hyena, crocodile (or leopard) and antelope. Most of them are polychrome. There are also human masks with long horns and a superstructure in the form of one or two human figures. The masks are supplemented by voluminous, multipartite costs of palm-frond strips or reed-grass, which completely conceal the dancer's body. At ceremonies, the animal masks are the first to appear, and they prepare the audience for the performance of the more powerful , anthropomorphic figures.

African Guro artists also carved figures, which appear either during entertainment festivals on the head of a dancer, or are kept in houses and employed as divination figures. These standing figures are carved with their hands on their hips and have a columnar neck supporting ahead with similar features to the face masks. Their beautiful weaving-loom pulleys are surmounted with heads, often female, of great elegance, embodying the protective spirit of labor.
