Description

The Dan people refer to masks as gle or ge, terms that refer both to the physical mask and the individual spirits the mask is believed to embody during masquerade performances. Dan people have achieved notoriety for their entertainment festivals, which were village ceremonies, but are today performed largely for important visitors.
