Description

The Toussian people are a small ethnic group living in the southwestern part of Burkina Faso (formerly called Haute-Volta).  Toussian masks, also known as Lonaike, are two-dimensional, rectangular plaques of wood with a broad triangle projecting downward from the lower rim. The mask is commonly used during initiation ceremonies and symbolises the spirit or totem of the clan.
