Description

The Mossi are one of the largest ethnic groups of Burkina Faso, with populations concentrated to the eastern border.

Boulsa-style masks are used by the Nyonyosé in the northeastern corner of Mossi country, in an area that corresponds closely to the traditional Mossi state of Boulsa. 

The Boulsa masks are stylistically very different to other Mossi masks. They are typically designed with a semi-cylindrical facial portion is bisected by a ridge or nose and parallel slits on each side of the nose permit the performer to see. The mask is painted white with kaolin clay, and has small red surrounds at the eyes.
