Beautiful used example with a native repair
Gelede masks, such as this one, are worn by male Yoruba dancers at festivals honoring the women of the community, living and dead, especially the powerful Great Mothers, including both the elderly women of the community and the ancestors of Yoruba society. The Gelede performances entertain and educate, and document elements of everyday life, such as the woman’s head tie in this example. Through their movements, Gelede dancers express Yoruba ideals of male and female behavior.
