The initiation to the Koré is meant to build masculine identity.
The word Koré is a forbidden term which must not be pronounced.
Initiates of the Koré are dispatched in different classes, each one with their own symbols and masks.
At the end of the retreat in the bush, the initiates come back to the village, some of them wear the masks which match with the animals they are incarnating.
Very beautiful and large mask.
