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.

    I've received the instrument on Friday, Febr. 15th in a good shape: well packed (lots of tape). I think the instrument is quite unique, strange that it cannot be tuned... well: I'm happy with it. KvZ
