Face Mask (Gu) 19th-mid-20th century. In Guro MASK culture, MASK are made between masquerades that are the focus of MASK and those that are more secular in MASK nature. A sequence of three sacred masks centers around Zamble, a mythical male being whose form fuses antelope and leopard features. He is in turn complemented by his beautiful wife, Gu, and his wild, grotesque brother, Zuali. Such representations are owned by certain families that use them as the loci of sacrificial offerings proposed by diviners to improve their well-being. In contrast, other Guro mask forms, which serve only as sources of entertainment, are designed by individual performers. In Guro culture, distinctions are made between masquerades that are the focus of cults and those that are more secular in nature.
